6 Dear Mrs Merriman
8 I hope you understood I was not able to call on you before I left town
9because I was too ill to go anywhere. I tried Matjesfontein, but the
10doctors sent me down again as they said it was too high ^up there^ & now
11I am staying on here till I am better.
13 I thought your husbands speech at Worcester the finest he has made for
14years (though perhaps he will not like my saying so!) & agree with it
15entirely, almost.
17 Yours sincerely
18 Olive Schreiner
