4 Dear EC
6 I wonder how the world goes with you & if you have been up to Glasgow
7& stayed with Bob.
9 Please tell Isabella I’ve had no letter from her in reply to my two
10last. I got one newspaper she sent me & two Mat sent me "The Morning
13 We’ve got two meerkats & two dogs & they are a great comfort & joy to
14us. Cron is sta trying to start business here as a law agent, ^as he
15can’t get away^ but there is not much work to be done here till Martial
16law is over which may not be for many years.
18 Give my love to dear old Mat & all the friends. It’s so nice to think
19of Bob having so many children; his little girl looks so lovely. I
20would like to see them.
22 We are having glorious cold winter weather here; hard frosts at night,
23& glorious warm sun in the day. The veld looks like heaven. I wish you
24could once see this great blue, free sky. English people can’t
25understand South Africans because they weren’t born under such a sky.
26Good bye. Drop me a line when the spirit moves you.
28 Olive
30 Love to dear Kate Salt.
