1 The Homestead
2 July 27 / 98
4 Darling Effie
6 I’m so glad mother is so satisfied. I knew she would be.
8 I was talking to Hudson yesterday & he says he’s quite sure you would
9be able to make a living in Johannesburg by your typewriting. He would
10advise you to practice hard for a couple of months first, however. Bt
11I can’t f help feeling anxious about you in Johannesburg, because I
12don’t think you would be very keen in seeing the difference between
13the people who are desirable & those who may not be so, if they are
14only friendly & kind. You know what I mean.
16 Give my love to my darling old sister when you write. Does Winnie say
17she seems better.
19 Your small Aunt, Olive
21 I will come in to see you as soon as I can, perhaps tomorrow.
23 Love to Mrs Lodge.
