6 Oh is it true Mary dear, that you are coming to Johannesburg next
7month. I have heard so. Do let me know that I may have something to
8look forward to. We have no spare room or I would want you & Mr Sauer
9to come & stay with us: but do stay in Johannesburg for a little time.
10I am so hungry to see you.
12 Olive
14 I began this note some days ago, but didn't get it finished. Some how
15I write to no one any more.
17 It will be so splendid if you do really come.

23 My darling
25 Cron is getting on so well with his lawyer's work. He has such endless
26determination & courage he would succeed with anything he undertook. I
27believe he is too generous & straight-forward ever to make much money
28as a lawyer, but that's all the better.
