5 Dear you didn’t understand my letter. I didn’t think of travelling
6about with you in Europe. If I do go I shall be in the Doctors hands
7in Germany or Paris all the time I only thought if there was any
8chance of my going, & you & Alice might be going in Sep or Oct I might
9go about the same time. It is quite unlikely I shall go.

11 I hope darling Alice has good news from her sister. I feel very sad
12about dear Mrs Murray. What a fine girl May is becoming. Can you send
13me the Bedales address. My sister-in-law sail for England a few days
14ago. She wants to leave one or perhaps 2 of her girls in England &
15Bedales would exactly suit her. I hope you will find it all right at
16Lucy’s. Its to me such a charming house & out look. I am leaving on
17the morning of Thursday the 9th for de Aar.

19 Good bye dear one. Its joys my heart to see you looking so strong &
20well.
