6 Dear Fan
8 Do come up & see me again if you come up here. I’ve only been down
9town once since I came as I am afraid of getting asthma, & can’t
10come come out to Newlands until the weather is quite dry. Give my love
11to my dear old Brother. I’ll look him up in his office some day.
13 Cron has been out spending the day with his mother today.
15 I hope Ollie has got over his chicken-pox.
17 I’m so comfortable here. Nothing could be nicer.
19 Much love to all
20 Olive

23He’s such a dear, simple old fellow, just like a sweet child himself!!
24They are very kind to me, think £6 a month very cheap.
