Dec 26th 1911
I find the letter I kept at de Aar to be posted to you was never sent.
8: I wrote at once before leaving de Aar to tell you how much I regretted
9: that my health would not allow of my travelling about the country in
10: the summer, but that anything I could do from Cape Town (where I shall
11: be for the next three months) I should be most glad to do.
The subject of the so called Black-Peril is one that interests me
14: deeply. My feeling of course is that peril which has long over
15: shadowed this country, is one which exists for all dark skinned women
16: at the hands of white men.
If I can do anything in Cape Town to assist in any way I shall be glad.
