5 Dear Lucy
7 I am so grieved about your husbands accident. I meant to try & come &
8see you this afternoon but the rain has prevented me. It is pouring
9here so that one can’t even see the sea. I feel very anxious about
10your husband as one never knows how much one’s system has been
11disorganized by such such a terrible shock. Do send me a card to let
12me know how he is. I do hope he will soon feel quite himself, because
13you would not enjoy your visit to Europe if he were even a little
16 My dear love & sympathy goes to you, dear.
17 Olive
