5 I'm going to come & see you on Monday if I can but I'm not sure I've
6told Mr Sauer about the box & given him the bill of landing, so he can
7get it. I will try to bring it out to you myself to see it on.

9 I had such a glorious walk to-day by myself but to the block house. I
10went up through the gorge at Rondebosch & came down the other side to
11Mowbray. It was the most beautiful walk I've ever had. I've got a nice
12little plan I want to talk to you about.

14 Good bye.
15 Love to Ella & Effie,
16 Olive
