Ethel Barney sick. (?) Too bad. "Tink"operated on for hining[?] at Devens. Worked a little. Did not go out.

Note: The first question mark is Ada's. Does this imply that Ethel is pregnant, I wonder?
The second question mark is mine. I just can't make out what Tink was operated on for.
Devens refers to Fort Devens in Massachusetts - where many many soldiers where stationed before going overseas. I believe there was a very high rate of Spanish Flu there.
