1 Dear Fan,
3 Old Man Will passed here, yesterday. Train only stopped three minutes.
4Am at Matjesfontein alone. The air is doing me good; but I shall be
5glad if Cron is elected & I can get down to Sea Point for a few days.
6One longs for the sea air. Cron is away at Prince Albert &c, & will be
7electioneering for another week.
9 Your little sister
