7 I got a note from Oliver today saying they would leave Cape Town on
8the 6th & sleep here on the night of the 7th but he didn’t say
9whether they would get here by the morning train on the 7th or the
10night train. Please let me know whether they leave Cape Town by the
11morning train on Monday or the evening, so that I can know which train
12to meet at the station. I wish our house were done & you were coming
13to stay with me while
14
15^they go on. But it will not be ready till the end of March. A happy
16new year to you all. ^

21 Please wire me which train they left by, because I never go down to
22the Camp unless it’s necessary & I should be so sorry if they came &
23I wasn’t there to meet them.
