Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 181 )
I was delighted by his reply, it would appear that in James Cameron I had found the Junior Partner that I was seeking. I enquired, ‘How soon can you move in and begin practicing?’
‘I have booked into a hotel overnight, so with your permission I will move in tomorrow morning after breakfast if that is not inconvenient?’ He replied.
‘That will be just perfect, I will tell Mrs Mc Ginty to air a room for you, once you are settled in, I will show you around and explain your duties. ‘The remainder of the staff will be here on Monday, you have met Jenny briefly, but I will introduce you properly.’ I explained.
‘What may I call you?’ He asked. ‘Jack is fine or if patients are present Doctor Jack, likewise I shall call you James or Doctor James as circumstances dictate.’ I replied.
‘If you have no objections I would prefer to be addressed as Jimmy or Jim, James is a little formal, I want to be accessible to my patients.’
I liked his attitude, he thought on his feet, and I had the feeling that he was just exactly what my practice needed.
