in this case predict a personal danger, as
there are no further signs of illness or
misfortune. So that it may safely be taken
to mean that the consultant will shortly be
going to see a friend who has had an
operation; this fact is borne out by the
short dotted line beyond, leading to the
door knocker, under which is written the

dotted line would show that it will probably
be seven weeks before this friend recovers
from the illness. This friend's name is
shown to begin with "L," as that letter is

for some time.
But these symbols make the prediction of
ultimate success a safe one. Should the
consultant be a musician, triumph in the
profession would be assured.

domestic worries and household cares. But
the tea cozy in the centre promises
compensation in the way of small comforts
