6 I must write to congratulate you about your boy’s success. It’s a
7splendid thing. I’m so glad to think you will soon have your dear
8youngest with you; it will be especially a joy to have your baby Ursie
9after such a long absence.

11 I had a note from Dot when she got to Intabani telling me what a
12wonderful little boy Johnnie Findlay was. I’m hoping she may be able
13to spend a day with you ^me^ on her way down: though I’m not much of a
14person for any one to come & see now.
15
16 I hope you feel benefit from your change? Did it do your ear any good.

18 It’s nice you’ve been able to see Kittie in her own home.
