3Dear Your letters are my great delight – how could I be angry! –
4Except that you don’t come to Europe. I hope I shall see Ghandi in
5London. Is dear old Kallenbach coming with him? Give me his address I
6shall soon be back in Holland & then in England. Where are your little
7rooms in Cape Town. Its so nice to have some little place of your very own.
8 I long for it so. Do write. Your letters are so much to me
10Love to my ^darling Betty^
