4 My husband has arrived in England on his way to America and will be
5here with me till the 13th August when I sail for South Africa.
7 I have a great favour to ask: if you could give him a few letters of
8introduction to any people in the "States". It will make all the
9difference in his trip if he has some introductions. It would be such
10a favour if you felt able to do this for me. It is so beautiful to
11have him with me for this little while.
13 When does your wife return? I hope you have sold your beautiful little
14house well.
