5 Dear Mrs Murray
6
7 After I'd sent off my friends letter I wondered if I ought to show a
8letter that was so very private; but I'm sure she would not have
9minded my showing it to you if she knew you. Will you please return it
10in the enclosed envelope. I do hope if you should be going to Cape
11Town at anytime & pass here you will let me know that I may run over
12to the station & see you. It would be so nice if you could come & stop
13at the hotel for a few days while I'm here. I do not think I shall be
14going down to Parliament this year
