6 I wonder if you are still at that lovely Miller’s Point, & I wonder
7if you wrote any verses while you were there? I think that view just
8round the point to Smutswinkle is one of the loveliest things in the
9world.

11 Are you feeling quite strong now. The kalabash Mrs Murray brought me
12has answered so splendidly, & the milk is doing me much good. A
13kalabash is so nice, because if you travelled you could take it with
14you in the train, & you can’t take a great heavy jar, & the germ
15doesn’t die so quickly if you don’t add fresh milk.

17 Have you seen that the Woman’s Enfranchisement League in the
18Transvaal has split Mrs Wyburg & Miss Boile seem to have been too
19autocratic & a number of the leading members have left & started a new
20society. I don’t think its bad when divisions occur in societies; it
21shows they are alive. And each society appeals most to a different
22class of persons.

24 Give my best love to the dear children. I can never forget them or my
25happy happy little visit to you.
26
27 Yours always with much love
