Do you want to say something about your own difficulty last year?
Well, I don't know yet what really happened. I evidently
was tired when I was in Europe and in England...
Had you done too much traveling or something?
No, I don't think so. I had been in Venice. It's only a
short trip to Paris. I came to Paris, was in Paris for a few days,
and then I went to England, and I went to bed reading a book. I
don't know what time it happened, but I guess in the morning my maid
came in and saw my robe on the floor of the bathroom, and she finally
went in and investigated, not having paid any attention when she
first saw it; and she saw that I had fallen on the floor. She called
Mrs. Blair, and Mrs. Blair came...
You were sharing a suite were you?
No, no. We were visiting a friend. She told the friend,
and the friend apparently felt they should call an ambulance and take
me to a hospital, which was the Wellington Hospital.
This was in London.
In London, yes. And there were very pleasant doctors there.
Were you unconscious at that point?
