1 Graaff Reinet
3 I am leaving for Somerset East. There was fever at Oudeberg & they
4could not keep boarders there. I was not afraid of the fever & would
5have stayed on if I could the air was so fine. I am going to stay with
6Minnie de Villiers mother Mrs Drummond at Somerset for about a
7fortnight, & may then get to a farm near Cradock.
9 Love to all
