1 De Aar
3 I did send on your letter on to Miss Hyett & am glad I did, as she
4will be delighted to come to you at Xmas time. She can't get enough
5violin pupils at Pretoria. I wonder if there is a good opening for a
6violin teacher at Graaff Reinet She is splendid on the violin.
8 I send a couple of stamps for the album.
10 I've just got my English mail with such a lot of beautiful letters. I
11live for Wednesdays mail.
13 Minnie de Villiers says her meeting at Stellenbosh was very successful.
14 Lyndall went over with her. Colonel Stanford was in the chair: 10 new
15members joined.
17 Lady Lock passed down the other day from Kimberley. She is spending a
18short time with my sister-in-law & niece before she returns to England.
20 There's no news to give you of myself. My garden is doing splendidly.
21I have one very wonderful dark maroon pansy very doubled & curled. I'm
22going to try & get seed from it & will send you some. I wonder if you
23have all the kinds of chrys, asters chrysanthemums I have? I'd like to
24send you some on the chance you haven't.
26 I work in the garden all the time when I'm well enough.
28 Love to all you dear people
