1 De Aar
2 May 26th 1909
4 My dear Mrs Murray
6 We shall be arriving in Cape Town on the evening of the 31st
7unreadable I do hope you will not be leaving so early in June that I
8have not a chance of seeing you before you go. I hear from Anna
they had such a satisfactory meeting at your house. It is
10indeed a loss to us that you are going away just now; but I can
11realize how much of your heart is already over there. It will be a
12great joy to Betty too to see you again – perhaps she will come out
13with you! Cape Town will seem empty this winter without you & dear
14Lucy Molteno.
16 Yours ever
17 Olive Schreiner
