But why should he necessarily lose it? 3
Why must not a man marry?1
I am sorry,I would not be rude. My wife has just died. You must forgive me.
It is very difficult, I cannot resign myself

The major came very regularly to the hospital. I do not think he ever missed a day,although I am sure he did not believe in the machines. There was a time when none of us believed in the machines, and one day the major said it was all nonsense. The machines were new then and it was we who were to prove them.
He went back into the other room for the light treatment and the massage. Then I heard him ask the doctor if he might use his telephone and he shut the door. When he came back into the room, I was sitting in another machine. He was wearing his cape and had his cap on, and he came directly toward my machine and put his arm on my shoulder.
He looked straight past me and out through the window. Then he began to cry. And then crying, his head up looking at nothing, carrying himself straight and soldierly, with tears on both cheeks and biting his lips, he walked past the machines and out the door.
