John believes that his wife has a "slight hysterical tendency" due to lack of rest and too much work. She is taken to an estate to rest and in her own words;

"So I take phosphates or phosphites—whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to "work" until I am well again."
