1 Naples March 21 / 97
3 My dear Will,
5 I have only seen the report of your exam in the Standard. It was very
6poor, & of course all on the Rhodes side. You seemed to speak
7splendidly. There was not one word you said I disagreed with. We shall
8stay here a couple of days & reach Alassio on the 24th. Let me find a
9line there.
11 Your little sis
12 Olive
