Scope and content

West Hackhurst, Abinger Hammer, Dorking. - Has consulted Mr Williams [about prostate trouble], but not had a surgical examination as he only conducts these in a nursing home. Liked Williams very much; is still unhappy about the idea of the operation; there is no chance of cancer; encloses correspondence for her to see. Would like to visit on Tuesday. Ackerley recommends 'one Mellin [?] who does dia-thermoid [?] treatment': thinks this was the treatment Goldie [Dickinson] was unable to have.
