1 Dear Mrs Solomon
3 There is a little gathering at my doctors Dr Ettie Sayer
4 35 Upper Brooke St
5 Park Lane. Where a man who has lived in Egypt is to read a paper on
6the natives of Egypt in whom he he much interested. Would you be well
7enough to come, I fear not? But if you or Daisy or her friend would
8care to come the meeting is at 5 on Saturday & no 16 bus puts you down
9almost at her door. I & Miss Molteno will be there.
11 My best love to you
12 Olive Schreiner
