6 I hope the voyage is proving restful to you & that when you get this
7you will be feeling in a way a new person. Drop me a line dear, to

9yet so much wrong that mere rest & change may not do you much good.

11 I have not seen any of our folk since you left. I have only twice been
12out since that day I went to Rondebosch to see you. I am not able to
13get about much now; without difficulty I do nothing. Take care of your
14self, don’t come to this.
