n. y. a dockter that takes care of
poor folks down on the east side had
a case the uther day that left him
feeling like he dident know just where
he was at
he had been going, to see a feller
that was very sick, and very hard up
evry day the feller's wife yould ask
the dock, is jim going to ever git well
the dock he kept telling her while
there was life there was hope, and
cheerful things like that till one day
jim was mighty low, and the dock
thought he mite as well give her the
bad news and be done with it
so he says, my dear lady, i am
sorry to tell you, but there aint a
chanst in the world for jim, he cant
last more than a few days i am afrade
well, of course Mrs. jim she felt
pretty bad, but she dident say mutch
and the dock thought, now the worst
but then all of a sudden, like it
sometimes happens, jim he took a
turn and he begun to get better
so in a cuppel of days the dock he
says to jim's wife, maddem, i am glad
to be able to tell you that your hus
band is going to git well
what do you mean git well, she
ansers, you told me he couldent live
more than a few days
well, says the dock, all i can say
is that he is going to recover, aint
well dock, she replys, of course ime
glad, and its all rite in a way, but it
puts me in a kind of a hole
i sold jim's clothes and got me
some swell mourning duds, and i
must say i think you've kind of made
a mess of things
which the dock aint denying.
