13Its been such a pleasure to me to see your brother Ted. My heart does
14hunger after the Cape & all connected with it so.

16If only I could get well enough to feel I could go back. I weary
17longing to see my husband But the first day at de Aar in the heat
18would break me down & I should be no use to any one
