6 My friend Mrs Haldane Murray has just written to tell me how hard you
7are working for us at Cathcart. This is just to hold out a hand of
8friendship to you. I know how difficult it often is to start a new
9thing in an up-country, but once started, & when our women really
10understand the the great good, not only to themselves, but to men &
11all the nation, the freedom of women will bring, I believe our South
12African women will be even more earnest & successful than others.

14 I am sending you a little paper by my husband who is strongly in
15favour of women's getting the vote.

17 Yours very sincerely & wishing you all success
