14 I am so glad they like Peter Naude. I'm afraid you are having a

16feel bad.

18 I went for a drive with the Miss Loch's & Miss Villiers this afternoon.
19 The fresh wind was glorious. Ask Miss Shippard to send me the photo
20she promised. Dick & I were taken this afternoon, but Dick would wag
21his tail. The Photographer said he'd never seen such a dog!
