3Darling Betty
5I am always thinking of you I shall be so glad to hear how you are. I
6sometimes feel when you hear Mrs Murray & Margaret have come you’ll
7feel you must run up. I wish you would go to Park lands. You & Mrs
could have lovely times together in that lovely summer house of
11Its raining here but quite nice & cool today, & I was able to go out a
12little this afternoon & look at some pictures. I do hope you will come
13to Africa with May & Freddy & Mrs Molteno. I am sure the new life &
14new interests will restore you.
16Do you see the Herald? that Russian reply was splendid. I’ll send
17you the Herald if you can’t get it at Trevone.
19Greetings from Cron. Did I tell you he is so sweet he has offered to
20pay my passage money out to Africa. So now I have no business troubles.
21 Hodgson is coming to take us in his motor car to go out & spend a day
22with them & bring us back in the evening.
24All good be with you dear loving heart –
