Old Doctor Grapefruit and Other Life-savers – Strength Magazine – October, 1924

Did it ever occur to you to ask just why the one thing that you like to send or take to a sick friend, apart from flowers, is a basket of fruit? Did it ever occur to you that it was because you knew even without thinking about it, or subconsciously as they say nowadays, that fruit was the one thing that your friend would most welcome upon his or her sick bed, and the one thing that could be eaten with relish?
