In the first letter Taylor describes some of his examinations by the doctors, what the weather is like, that there is no tobacco or smoking, and that on Sundays you can not buy a newspaper on the grounds. The second letter provides detailed information about one of Taylor's days from the time he gets up till bedtime. He mentions that all of the staff are religious and you can not get a job there if you smoke. In the last of these letters, Taylor describes his continued improvement, hearing a lecture by Dr. Kellogg, about Dr. Kellogg's 40 adopted children, and the benefits of the sun.
