When Henry came home from the office last Thursday night, he saw a note from his wife on the kitchen table. "Henry," the note said, "my mother isn't well and I am going home to be with her for a few days. There are a few things that ought to be done while I'm away.

"First, take your blue jacket to the dry cleaner's and leave your shirts at the laundry. At the same time, would you please stop at the shoe repairman's and get my brown shoes? And go to the supermarket and get some coffee, milk, and butter.

"When you get home, please call Mary Bickford and tell her that I won't be able to go to her party tomorrow evening. Tell her why I can’t come.

"There are three things that must be done before you go to work tomorrow morning: leave a note for the milkman asking for just one quart, not two; put the garbage in the backyard; give the dog something to eat.

"If you have time on Saturday, cut the grass. Don't forget the grass in the backyard. The newspaper boy will come on Saturday afternoon. Be sure to give him money.

"I think that's all. I'll call this evening and let you know how Mom is.

                                                                 Love,

                                                                           Alice"
