7 December, 1917 Dearest Dada: Three letters from you, one from Ruth Tuthill & one from Reed! Of your three letters, I didn't know which to open first: so I said "Eni, meeni, mini mo," and [hegora]! They came out just as they ought to! Your letters are God-sends! Let me tell you that I am ill in bed with temperature of 103 yesterday: but since then I have come down to 101. In my last letter to you, I told you how ill Father was. You know he has Bright's Disease, and cannot eat anything but vegetables. Well, he gets so tired of that; [page break] but whenever he takes meat, his whole body swells. Then Mother got the grippe, and now I have it! Then too recently Dad has had big business losses, which cuts off his income several thousands interest per year. All together, everything seems pretty dismal. I told you of the awful time I have had with my face. Well, it is still not well, but I have decided to go out as though nothing is the matter, for I have found that the closer I stick at home, the more uncertain my temper becomes. Since [page break] I have shut myself up at home, life has become dull - dull, dull! I am seized with such un- reasonable and unreason- ing fits of temper that sometimes I think I am going insane. About the S.S. school class. Well, for the last ten weeks, I have not been there as my face has been so blotched up! I am sorry your prayers have been so wasted! But now I am going whether I get well or not. There has been so much sickness in China. And [page break] with the awful, awful Tientsin flood, so much misery is everywhere! Sometimes, when I look at the dirty, ragged swarming humanity in our slums, I feel the sense of bitter futility in hoping for a great and a new China, and the sense of my own smallness. Dada, you cannot con- ceive how useless one feels in such surroundings. The percentage of poor here is greater than any you could conceive of in America. You say that sugar is scarce. Well, I am sending you, - or rather Grandad some Chinese candy - packed [page break] in two. I don't think there will be any duty to pay on it. The cost of living on account of the war has gone up too - even here. Coal is $32.00 a ton! I feel absolutely wicked that we have three large stoves going all day long: but as Mother said, it is cheap- er to buy coal than to pay doctor's bills. Well, let me tell you an adventure I had the other day. On the way home from the doctor's where I had gone to fetch him for Mother, I had the chauffeur to drop me at the Pathe office where I had to attend [page break] a censorship committee meeting. When I went in there, I was told that the Committee would meet at 439 Ning Po Road. I went to Ning Po Road, and found only dark narrow filthy alleyways, and no 439 anywhere. I looked and I looked, but couldn't find any go-down at all. In the meanwhile, it had gotten dark, and I was all alone walking to and fro, and the motor had gone with the doctor. Finally, as I could not understand the rickshaw coolies (for they spoke a sort of cockney [page break] Shanghai dialect) and as they all looked so menacing in the half darkness, I did not know what to do. You see, I did not dare to get in a rickshaw, not knowing where he would lead me. Finally I kept on walking, and found myself lost in the maze of narrow streets. And terribly cold and frightened. Just then a carriage passed me, and in it I saw a foreigner about 40. I hailed him, and never was I so glad to hear English spoken. He put me in the carriage with him, and after an [page break] hour of hunting, he found the place for me. It seemed that the number 439 was numbered according to the Chinese method, and hence is not 439 at all. The gentleman was very nice, although he seemed greatly surprised that I should be wandering around that part of town at that hour. I explained to him the circumstances, and he told me that he would come back for me to take me to where I told the chauffeur to return for me. So after the meeting, he took me back to the Pathe office, where the car was awaiting [page break] me. It seems very funny that I should find the greatest comfort in the English language in China, isn't it? I don't know who the gentleman is, although I should like to know very much. Well, wandering around the street half frozen and scared to death have landed me in bed now! Every week, I go to censor pictures - moving pictures. On the whole they are very good, and we pass most of them. The Pathe and the Victoria pictures are the best. Most of them have too much mushy [page break] love-making, and rolling around of eyes. Dr. Sun Yat Sen's nephew was killed by a bomb in the Whangpoo river. As the Doctor was ill in bed, Mrs. Sun had to see to the body. She found that the head was swollen three times the normal size, the mouth and the eyes all bloody. She is now ill from the effects of attending to the ceremonies. As you know, the Peking Gazette has been suppressed. The Editor-in-chief Mr. Chen is ill in Shanghai. [page break] The Tuan cabinet has fallen. Chinese politics is impossible: one never knows what next is going to happen, and one never knows when one's head is going to be the next to be chopped off. It is more than kind of you to send us The New Republic! I shall enjoy reading and discussing it with you. By the way, has Ling Ling sent you the money for the magazine subscriptions? And how does our account [page break] stand now? I feel like a regular invalid with my bed full of magazines that have just come by the same mail in your letter. Reno said Bob was married on Thanksgiving. With much love, and write soon. Tell me if you like the Chinese candy - With love Daughter. Hurrah for the new cook!

The partnership increased Bancroft's wealth dramatically, and the mills continued to grow and prosper, soon becoming the largest textile mill in the United States.[5] Joseph died in 1874, leaving his two sons to run the company by themselves. William then married Emma Cooper in 1876.

In China, we are able to examine the transient response of infection growth rates following policy deployment because only three policies were deployed early in a seven-week sample period during which we observe many cities simultaneously. This provides us with sufficient data to estimate the temporal structure of policy effects without imposing assumptions regarding this structure. To do this, we estimate a distributed-lag model that encodes policy parameters using weekly lags based on the date that each policy is first implemented in locality i. This means the effect of a policy implemented one week ago is allowed to differ arbitrarily from the effect of that same policy in the following week, and so on. These effects are then estimated simultaneously and are displayed in Fig. 2b, c (see also Supplementary Table 3). Such a distributed lag approach did not provide statistically meaningful insights in other countries using the currently available data because there were fewer administrative units and shorter periods of observation (that is, smaller samples), and more policies (that is, more parameters to estimate) in all other countries. Future studies may be able to successfully explore these dynamics outside of China.

A useful example comes from a study that sought to understand resistance to using evidence-based guidelines from the perspective of physicians focused on providing clinical care [45]. The analysis drew on data collected from interviews of 11 physicians selected for their expertise and diversity across a set of sociodemographic characteristics. In the first phase of the analysis, the team analyzed the full-length interviews and identified key themes and the relationships between them. Particular attention was paid to implicit and explicit meanings, repeated ideas or phrases, and metaphor choices. Two authors conducted the analyses separately and then compared them to reach a consensus. In the second phase of the analysis, the team considered the group of 11 interviews as a set. Using an inductive perspective, the team identified superordinate (or high-level) themes that addressed the full dataset. The final phase of the analysis was to identify a single superordinate theme that would serve as the core description of clinical practice. The team engaged other colleagues from diverse backgrounds to support reflection and refinement of the analysis. The analysis yielded a theoretical model that focused on a core concept (clinical practice as engagement), broken out into five constituent parts addressing how clinicians experience their practice, separate from following external guidelines. 041b061a72
