5 Dear Friend
7 I want to write you a long letter answering yours. Now I'll only thank
8you for it. How sweet of the beloved children to send me the karross.
9Ask them to send it to De Aar that it may be waiting there for me when
10I come home. I am so well here. I have been here just a week & am
11feeling better than I've done anywhere for 14 years.
13 I wish you were coming down here too. Do arrange to come here next
14year this with the cheap fares they have now. But you must take the
15cottage long before hand or you can't get one, its so full.
17 My dear friend Isie Smuts is down here, & Minnie de Villiers is down
18here & my brother has a house here so I see them often. A long letter
21 Much love
23^to all
