1 De Aar
2 Sep 7th 1906.
4 Dear Laddie
6 I hope you had a good time of rest at Gordon’s Bay. I leave for
7Matjesfontein on Tuesday next & shall likely stay there a month to try
8& get better.
10 I’ll write & let you know how it goes with me there. I have just
11heard that Theo & Kate Stuart have taken a house there for six months.
12But I can’t change my plan because of them. There’s no where else
13I can go.
15 Don’t work too hard dear. Look upon holidays & exercise gentle
16persistent exercise as your first duty in life.
18 Love to the dear folk at Lyndall.
19 Olive
