5 Dear Mary,
7 You looked so tired some how. Darling I can't bear to think you are
8ever tired or unhappy. Are you unwell at all. Are you going to have
9another Baby perhaps? I should love it so if you had a little one. I
10shall go on Monday night in the hope of seeing you. When is Miss
coming to you? Effie Hemming is coming here ^to Cape Town^ on
12Sunday, Mrs Hemming asked my sister-in-law to take her till she goes
13to you. What time will that be? Write me a line if you can't on Monday
14to Government House. I'm so I hope you understood my driving home with
15the Fuller's. I thought it would save you & Mr Sauer the trouble.
16Please come up here when ever you have time, & are in town.
18 Yours always unchangingly
19 Olive Schreiner
