4 It may seem strange that I have a certain sharp satisfaction at the
5thought of receiving money help from you. I do not need it – I can
6do my work at Shanklin – I will now better than before – For for a

9 On Wednesday evening Miss Haddon is coming to talk with me. If you
10thought it well to talk the ^matter^ over straightly with her, you might
11come; but it hardly seems right that you should run yourself out any
12more than can be helped. You are looking far from well the last month.
13That apart, it would be well if you could meet her here.

15 Your letter to me this morning was valuable, but less so than some you
16have written lately.
