7Dear Friend I have just got the enclosed letter, but no address. Would
8you tell the writer I have joined the woman’s committee here; &
9would deeply have liked to come over to the conference but cannot.
11My Neither my health nor my purse will allow of it. How deeply I
12should like to talk over South African affairs with you.
14Is there no possibility of your coming to England. My heart has got
15much worse, & I can do so little of all I wish.
17Yours with loving greetings
