5 Dear Friend
7 It will be Xmas in two days. I hope you & Alice will both be spending
8it in England among your folk.
10 It is beautifully cool up her & the dear Murrays a most kind, their
11second little girl Kathleen is a most attractive & remarkable child
12– a child after my own heart – a little wild creature of eight,
13full of intellect – spending her life in climbing trees, riding
14horses, & with a passionate all absorbing love for animals. I have a
15curiouse sense of kin-ship with her.
17 Good bye. May next year bring you both much good
18 Olive
