3 Dear Dr Wilson

5 I am deeply sorry to hear Mrs Wilson is not improving as you had hoped.
6 I should have sent every day to ask how she was, but I know it is
7only troubling to have people continually coming to inquire who can be
8of no help, & I have always heard of her from Mrs de Villiers. I do
9hope you will soon be able to move her up to this house as I am sure
10she will get better here.

12 Perhaps I shall then be able to be of a little use in seeing to the
13children.

15 Please let me know how much I am indebted to you.
