6Dear Friend
8Our drive to Camps Bay yesterday was a great pleasure to me. Aren’t
9those mountains lovely? Please let me know of your future plans when
10you have made them.
12If Sunday is free & you have nothing better to do & you would come &
13have lunch with us at 1 (boarding house lunch, not G. S. lunch of
14course!) we might drive out to Camps Bay again or sit on my balcony &
15have a nice restful talk in the afternoon.
17^Please let me know at once if you can come as if not I may make other
18plans for the day. I want so much to see you once more. Perhaps we
19shall never see each other again.^
22^If your daughter has no other engagement I will be very glad is she
23will come with you. O/S.^
