4 My darling Mothie
6 It’s a bitter cold day, snow clouds hanging low in the sky. We are
7all so cold, no fires, the mierkats look melancholy. If I am better at
8the end of the week I shall try to get away to Bloemfontein. It is my
9heart that is troubling me.
11 Good bye my own sweet little mother.
12 Your Olive
