The Maxwells of Montreal Vol II, Violette Nakhjavani, p412
[S]ince the beginning of April my dear father, Mr. Maxwell, has been dangerously and desperately ill. The anxiety this caused us all, and the constant coming and going of doctors and nurses, and two periods in hospital, have necessitated putting aside all correspondence for months. Now, however, thank God, Mr. Maxwell is slowly improving and the threads of normal existence can be taken up by us all.
