1 Dear Mrs Murray

3 I had a bad attack of angina to-day & was so prostrate I could do
4nothing. And Mr Schreiner is gone upcountry, so I had no one to take a
5wire for me. I'm so sorry I couldn't come.

7 I hope I shall be able to be at the meeting on Monday. Get all the
8young unmarried men & women you can to come, but no old married ones.

10 Yours ever
