4 Dear Isie
6 Thank you so much for your letter. I can’t come just now, but may
7later. I am leaving for Matjesfontein on Saturday. My husband says he
8can’t spare time to go to Cape Town. I wish he could the heat is so
9terrible here. I never knew anything quite like the last three days.
11 Thank you so much
