Irvington, June 30 — A fe more letters have arrived for th James Blacks from the daughte Mary, Red Cross nurse at Sails bury, England. One letter, written May 13, ha been considered especially inter esting, since it tells of a visit a the hospital by the Queen moth er, widow of the late George V "Now that I sit down to tel you all the things that have hap pened lately, I feel that I should have taken a few notes," Marv wrote. * "This week we had a most im portant visitor, and a nice thing about it is that she asked per mission to come.

"We were all instructed to wear either indoor or outdoor uniforms, and that was a good thing, for I'm sure nobody would want the Queen to sec us in some of the outfits we wear on various occasions. •j' A , s I am on ni t'ht duty, I d"- cided that I'd not let even the Queen disturb my day's rest, but at 2 o clock I was awakened by someone saying, 'I'm positive that our flag should be on tho ri»M' and someone else answering Yes, but we're in England now.' And the dispute continued t'U I "was wideawake. Make Way for Ihe Queen! "I got into my indoor uniform and went to the receiving building, where I work. Of course everyone else was early too, so we spent the time trying to learn to curtsey. Finally we decided that we were all too awkward at it, so we gave it up and deter- mi ££ to do as wo do in America . Promptly at 3 the Queen arrived. First came a car with four guards, then two dispatch riders on motorbikes, last the Queen accompanied by Sir John Doke' ner gentleman of the equerry f.ady Desborough, lady-in-wait- mg, and a detective.

Old ami Stately. "The Queen, who is very old and very stately, was dressed in a beautiful powder-blue suit princess style. The suit had a small squirrel collar. Her hat best described as a Queen Mary type, was a turban of the same blue, with a feather in front The Queen carried a parasol of the same shade as her gown Her shoes, hose, and gloves were gray. The shoes were typical English pumps with pointed toes and indented heel. Lady Desborough was in black, with a silver fox fur. _ "The tour of inspection started in the administrative building which is directly opposite the receiving ward, so we had ringside seats lor arrival and greetings.

The Queen first shook hands with all eight of us and then was conducted throug the building by the supervisor She looked only at what sh wanted to see, and whenever th supervisor began to explain something in which she was no interested she turned away anc started talking about somethim else. * "The Queen was next taken t< Ward 2, which was a 'representa lives ward, and she went inti each room, speaking to each pa tient. Of course the patient were greatly thrilled. Some o tnem had never seen her before "My God! Queen Lost!' "The party then'went to the kitchen, and there the second chef, on hearing that the Queen •was coming, took off his apron and got down on hands and knees in a hurry to scrub the floor! "The next stop was the laundry, and there Lady Desborough and Sir John became so much interested in the presses that the Queen got a considerable distance ahead of them, upon discovery of which Sir John exclaimed to Doctor Hawley, 'My God, we've lost the Queen!' "The 'recreation hut,' in which tea was served, had been beautifully decorated with flowers furnished by friends of members of the unit. Sir John went ahead to select the proper chair for the Queen, and he placed it where she could see the nurses having tea in an outer room. She especially liked the pressed tongue we had. After tea she had a cigarette with the rest. Hail and Farewell. "The Queen then asked to have , T T — * • ** • *rf^a\.4i/ 1TI« £"1» Ju&UC Jehneri, H Hammond, W!"E?Adam"' H tol " K °"* R. J; Bennett.
