NEIL CARROLL SR.Former Chief of Staff To the Editor:I was recently informed that my good friend Congressman Neil Gallagher is recovering from major surgery in a hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania. It was a trying time for a period but now he gets better with every day. Sadly he will not be home in time for the holidays. I think it would be a nice gesture if some of his old friends would find it in their hearts to send a Christmas card with well wishes. He remains a great friend. Send your letters to: Sacred Heart Hospital, 421 Chew Street, Allentown, Pennsylvania 18102. Thanks in advance.
