4 My darling Effie
6 I am so glad to hear things go fairly well with you. Yes, dear, I
7shall love to come & see you some day.
9 I’ve not seen Aunt Het for a long time. My heart & chest are very bad.
10I can’t go up to the Highlands. Sweet old Wyn came & spent a day with
11me Emma Earp is staying at the Highlands for a fortnight with her
12little new baby girl. Ely Findlay has taken a little house at Seapoint
13& is looking out for boarders. Poor, poor, old girl. I dread the life
14that lies before her. But she is splendidly strong & brave. I haven’t
15seen Uncle Will or any of them for a long time Aunt Fan not been well,
16a kind of asthma! I hope the business is doing well.
18 In three weeks time we shall be back at Hanover.
20 Good bye, my darling. Much love to Arthur & heaps of kisses for my two
21little nephews
