The League has talked to Roosevelt of my new condition. Roosevelt said the best place to get treatment in the United States, one of the only safe havens right now, is National Jewish. It’s in Denver, Colorado. Of all the places I’ve been, I’ve never been that far west in the US. It’s the Wild West. So boring. But on a darker note, my case is too severe to get treatment there. I’m hopeless. My days are blackened. I’m destined to die. So they are sending me to this sanatorium just up the road in Spivak, Colorado. I don’t care at this point. I’m going to die, aren’t I. Might as well make it a last adventure. Meanwhile, Patton has been in correspondence with me through stamps. We have developed a way to inscribe messages in the adhesive. We have been planning a few different ideas for large-scale attacks just across the English Channel into France where the Allies can get a foothold.
