6My dear Mrs Wilson
8I was so glad to get the good news that your little one had come
9safely to you. I did hope for your sake it would have been a little
10girl, but I know he will fill all your heart so there will soon be no
11room for feeling sorry. I am so glad to hear he is strong & healthy.
12It will be nice to see you about when I come back to Hanover; You have
13had such a weary long wait.
15I am having a very very happy time here. I will ill the first
16fortnight but am much better now.
18Please thank Dr Wilson for his note. I hope I shall hear further good
19news of you & the little son.
21Yours affectly
22Olive Schreiner
