12 Cron says he is going to build on two little rooms to this house this
13year a little sitting room & spare bedroom & then you must come with
14Baby & stay with me. If only we can get the typhoid germs killed out
15here. I have been ill with a curious vomiting & diarrhoea ever since I
16came back, & Cron seems getting it today. Many people have it here who
17have not typhoid: but we are going to have pipes laid for the water
18they say. Cron saw your father when
19
20^he was in Johannesburg last week & says he was looking very well,
21indeed better than he ever saw him.^
