5 I hope you have quite got over your influenza. I think of you & Miss G
6continually but I have no wish to write to anyone now. I have got some
7old clothes, but if you could send me any money as a P.O. order it
8would be valuable. Don’t trouble however if you have none on hand
9just now.

11 Cron is still here, & very busy with his natural History collections.
12Give my love especially to Mrs C & Mrs M & all theirs. I hope Mr C is
13better.
