1 De Aar
2 July 15th 1909
4 My dear Hud
6 Thanks so much for your letter. It's fine your having a farm & Bess
7going there. Tell her I'll come & see her there some day: I only like
8farm life; I am never really happy in a Town. Is your farm in a cool
9part of the Transvaal.
11 All goes on here with us as of old. Cron sends much love to you. I
12went three times to see poor old Ely, but could not get to see her
13after the baby was born as I was so ill.
15 I just met Willie Stuart's intended for a moment. She seems a most
16bright pleasant little person. Have you heard how Willie is doing in
17his business. There seems no opening for more barristers in Cape Town:
18but he seems to me a bright smart fellow who ought to do well. I like
19him very much.
21 Love to our sweet old Bess & all the children.
22 Your small aunt
23 Olive
