9I am too ill to go to that place at Hampstead, & next week shall leave
10as soon as I can do my packing of Llandrindod in Wales. Where there
11are baths & electric treatment The stone in my kidney is very bad I
12often have attack of pain like that I had at Muizenburg when you & Fan
13came to see. I may have to go to a nursing home. I had hoped so to
14keep about to the end; not like Ellie.

16I know my darling boy is doing what he thinks right. It’s been such
17a pleasure to me to see Fan.
