1 De Aar
2 July 17th 1909
4 Dear Fan, After your wonderful promis I did expect a letter from
5Maderia! Now I expect nothing, ^-^ but I hope!
7 I had a line from Will who said you had turned out a good sailor, &
8had made many friends, so I hope you enjoyed the voyage. I hope
9you’re having a grand time in London have you seen dear old Emma yet.
10 I’m sure you’ll love her. Do drop me a line & tell me how it goes.
11 You ought to write a family letter to sent to the children & then to
12the sisters in Cape Town, & then to me. We are all so anxious to know
13of your doing, & how you like things. What did you think of Lady
14Selbourne? Have you seen Alice Corthorn? Have you seen the fireworks
15at the Crystal Palace that I love so? Have you seen the East End! Go
16down in a bus on Saturday night right to the end of Mile End Rd. Ach I
17wish I was there to trot round with you.
19 Good by dear
