Oh, the poor little fellow. There is a boy sleeping in the bed. He is reading a book. One boy is in bed. He doesn’t look too happy, he is sick in bed and he has the measles. His name is John. They have locked him in bed and no one can go and see him. He has a family and they have kept him in bed and his is pretty sick. He could be a grown up man. He is about 7 years old. He would be lonely and crying by himself in the bedroom. Give him some lollies and they would be helpful. His bed hasn’t been made properly. Could be his mother’s bed. Val said he is in his own bed. This is his bedroom. He has a picture on the wall. He has a tiny one there. It looks like a cat. He has an apple beside the bed. It looks like a garden and there is something on his bed to get weeds out of the garden. They will be wondering what is inside. He may die from the measles. Put that together before we get in the car. He has to keep away from children. Where do they live? Poor little fellow lying there, we hope he gets better. We will send him a get well card, it will say get well soon. It is a very small bed. Poor kid is very sick, he can’t go outside and has fruit on his bed. After he looses the rash he will be right. God bless him.
