3I thought you looked so tired yesterday. I hope you’ve not over done it.

5I went & had lunch by myself at Cartwrights, but then I felt too tired
6to go up Monte Rosas, so came straight out. Let me know when you can
7have me for a few days. I have heard of a place at Sea Point I think
8may turn out quite good. I am going out to see it but shall be back by
9four o’clock. I’ll try to come over & see you this evening if you
10will be in. I am thinking so much of you. You will miss little Jean
11Frances I know.

16If you see Bill thank him for dancing with Lucy Molteno. I saw him at
17Cartwright but didn’t like to speak to him as he had three men with him.
