“Henry,” the note said, “my mother isn’t feeling 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.” “Henry”, der Ton sagte: “Meine Mutter fühlt sich nicht gut und ich gehe nach Hause, um mit ihr für ein paar Tage. Es gibt ein paar Dinge, die sollte man tun, während ich weg bin.”

“First, take your blue coat 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 telephone Mary Bickford and tell her I won’t be able to go to her party tomorrow evening. Tell her why I can’t come.” “Zuerst nehmen Sie Ihre blauen Mantel in die Reinigung des” und lassen Sie Ihre T-Shirts in der Wäscherei. Zur gleichen Zeit, würden Sie bitte aufhören, an der Schuh-Mechaniker ist und meine braune Schuhe? Und in den Supermarkt gehen und etwas Kaffee, Milch und Butter. “Wenn Sie nach Hause kommen, rufen Sie bitte Mary Bickford und ihr sagen, ich werde nicht in der Lage sein zu ihrer Party gehen morgen Abend. Sagen Sie ihr, warum ich nicht kommen kann.”

“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 of milk, not two; put the garbage in the backyard; give the dog something to eat.” “Es gibt drei Dinge, die getan werden, bevor Sie an die Arbeit morgen früh gehen muss:. Einen Zettel für den Milchmann fragen nur für einen Liter Milch, nicht zwei, setzen den Müll in den Hinterhof, gib dem Hund etwas zu essen”

“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 telephone this evening and let you know how Mother is. Love, Alice” “Wenn Sie Zeit haben, am Samstag, schneiden das Gras. Vergessen Sie nicht, das Gras in den Hinterhof. Die Zeitung Junge wird am Samstag Nachmittag kommen. Achten Sie darauf, ihm Geld zu geben. Ich denke, das ist alles. Ich werde heute Abend telefonieren und Sie wissen lassen, wie Mutter ist. Liebe, Alice “

Henry looked out the window at the grass Alice wanted him to cut. His wife had asked him to do many things. He hoped her mother would be well very quickly.
