10I couldn’t stay at Hampstead it was too damp, so have come back here.
11 I got a sweet note from Mrs Greene & she says she is coming to town
12next week.
13
14This afternoon Ted Molteno is coming to see me, & I shall perhaps hear
15some news of you.
16
17I wonder if you saw Cron when he was in Cape Town. Oh I long so to see
18him. I some times feel I can’t bear it.

20Friday
21Yours sisters Hellen & Eva came to see me. It was a joy. Eva is
22exactly as I pictured her. Hellen is so like you I almost embraced her.
23 I am going out next Sunday to have lunch with them. Polly is if
24possible to be there too. Isn’t Eva sweet. The wicked German is not
25always so vile!

27Ted Molteno comes to see me nearly every day. Mrs Murray is coming
28next week.
