1 The Homestead
2 Oct 27 / 94
4 I can’t get over the disappointment of our having left Krantz Plaats
5when you passed. I’m all the time sick still, night & day, & I
6can’t write much. I suppose I must quicken in a few days now, & then
7it may get better.
9 Do you know the Miss Herold who has so awfully died at Cape Town. I
10wonder so much if she is the one who went to England when I went. Who
11is supposed to be the child’s father?
13 Ach, I wish I could see some of my dear friends, & was not so far from
14you all. Dolly will be quite grown up when I see her next! Good bye.
16 Thine ever, dear,
17 Olive
