4 Dear Isie
6 The little shawl for the head will do just as well in fact I only
7didn’t want a very bright colour. Thank you so much dear I shall
8value it so. Crochet is just as nice as knitting to me.
10 Do write again soon & let me know how you are. It is such joy to me to
11see your handwriting.
13 I am so glad Ella is able to get on well with her studies.
15 A friend of mine here is very poor & is expecting a little Baby & if
16when you have time some day you would make a tiny little thing, a pair
17of socks or something of that kind for me to give her I know she would
18prize it greatly as having been made by you. She is a woman you would
19love if you knew her. I am going out tomorrow to buy some little bits
20of stuff for dresses for it. // Cron & I are both well, but my heart
21has been bad again the last two weeks.
23 Good bye. I was so thankful to hear you were all well. Love to Ella.
24 Olive
