Lungers: Elwell Stockdale [convalescent, Falkenstein sanatorium, Frankfurt-am-Main], Letter to Dr. Lawrence Flick, November 1898
"I find much to my surprise and sorrow that my right lung is also affected. I have always tried to console myself with the fact that some people live a long long time on one lung and that has always been my hope but I never heard of anyone living with no lungs."
Lungers: T.A. Gaffney [convalescent, Mt. Sunset Home sanatorium, Wernersville, July 1896]
"I try to find something to eat, but it is quite difficult at times…I begged a cracker off a doctor who sits at our table at dinner time. If I don’t get some good bread to eat I will die of starvation."
