4 Dear old sister

6 I hope you have got safely to your journeys end as far as Queens Town
7& are having a good time with May. I am glad you went off with that
8good news about boy Oliver to cheer you, & you will have been quite
9happy when Mrs ?Devenish joined you. Give my love to her & May. I got
10back yesterday morning, so glad to be home & see my old man. I think
11the worst of having no children is that you care for your husband too
12much. He is looking very fit & so are all the animals.

14 We are going to have a thunderstorm this afternoon. I hope you have
15taken enough cool dresses with you dear. You’ll find it quite warm
16at Kitty’s.

18 Cron sends much love to you. He says you must come & spend a few days
19with us on your way back or at least one day! My flower garden has all
20gone to ruin with the drought & everything looks very dry here.
21
22 Give my love to Kitty & Joe. You’ll have a lovely time with them
23I’m sure.
24 Your little sister
