6 I do wish I could see you. But I’m a dull stupid person now to see,
7not like I used to be when you saw me last – though I wasn’t much
8then.

10 I hope Africa will be nice to you. I somehow don’t think you will
11stay long at Dube’s. If you pass through the Transvaal go & see The
12unreadable Tolstoy Farm where Gandi is. You must come & see me on your
13way down.

15 Good bye, dear one.
