5 My darling darling friend
7 I have your letter. Oh it will be good if you come out in September.
8But stay your full stay out first. Miss Viljoen wants to sell her
9house in Hanover. It’s the nicest house in the place, close to mine,
10but she may want £600 for it as that’s what she gave. But they are
11hard up & might take less. Never mind if you are al only in South
12Africa where I can sometimes see you two. Love to Alice. I can so
13fully understand what a great help it has been to her to do something
14practical to help Hellen. Nothing helps one like doing some work, &
15getting it done.
17 Olive
19 I have seen some Doctors here they say my heart is more dilated than
20it was. I can’t get about so much as I could.

24 ^Anna Purcell is going to drive me to see Mrs Murray. I seem to long so
25to see any one who belongs to you.^
27 ^There will be a great addition to our little circle when you come out
28for the Browns mean to settle down here, & they are quite of us. You
29will love them greatly.^
