1Dear Fan
3As you won’t come to see me I must come to see you: If I die the sin
4is on your head!!! Will it be convenient if Cron & I turn up next
5Sunday if it’s moderately fine? Don’t mind saying if its not we
6can come another Sunday. It’s no use my coming on a week day because
7when I’ve taken a cab from Rondebosch I come & find you ^all^ out, not
8a soul at home!
10Thine ever, & much too good a little sister all together
13I’ll come in the morning because I cant come in the evening.
