Mary Rousmaniere Gordon, called Polly, was a private patient in Saranac Lake, suffering from acute tuberculosis. She spent three and a half years here. During that time her husband "managed things at home," as well as at his Wall Street firm, and he "visited Polly every other weekend, a ten-hour round trip." Her cure was successful, and she returned home to her family, giving birth to sons John and Dan after her cure.
