3 Dear,
5 I was so sorry Dr Beck wouldn't let me see any one today. Can you come
6on Saturday morning? I am posting this so that you shall get it by
7first post tomorrow (Saturday) If you can't come please send me a wire,
8 because I want to have you to my-self & won't make an arrangement to
9see anyone else if you can come. It was the best thing I've had since
10I came to Africa to see you. I would like to see the girls, & if they
11come on Saturday they won't be interfering with their school. It's not
12yet certain when I shall leave for Kimberley.
14 Give my love to Mrs Innes. I hope she has found her house ready, & her
15dear German girl & the other great helps,
17 Olive
