10 I have got permission to go for a walk tomorrow & I’m quite excited.
11Little Neta will be half out of her mind with delight. Miss
12Viljoen’s little nephew has bad whooping cough & as I’ve never had
13it, I am rather expecting it. The weather is absolutely heavenly here.
14One has a kind of feeling "God’s in his heaven, all’s well with
15the world!"

17 Good bye dear. My love to you both
