4 Dear Fan
6 We got here yesterday. I have sent Miss Molteno a letter from Isie
which I have asked her to send to you. Will you send it to
8Bessie as the news may interest her. Much love to you all dear. I am
9not so much better for the change as I had hoped, but no doubt I shall
10get stronger when the cold weather is over.
