Oiso, 29 March
My dear B.B.,
We are frightened to hear that you were not well. But we feel relieved knowing that now you are better.
I myself has not been well. By this time I ought to be at Stanford University California, but the medical examination before leaving Japan brought out some unknown illness to light, & I was put in Cancer hospital for about a month & I was treated with Ray Cobalt 60. This treatment is not painful at all, but very very exhausting & even now I have not recovered from the fatigue. After some interval I have to get the Ray treatment again, & so for the moment I have to give up my plan to go to America for some time. I am always talking with my wife how we wish to visit you again at I Tatti.
