5 Dear Mrs Murray
6
7 Thanks so much for your letter. I have now written to Mrs M’Gill too.
8 I fear the place may be too close lying in a hollow, but I want to
9try it before I go on to Matjesfontein as I shall be so much nearer my
10husband there.
11
12 I would be so nice if I could see you there. I have a longing for
13human intercourse of late of a kind I never had before: I suppose
14because I am now not able to think or write much my-self.
15
16 I will write & let you know if I go to Krom River

18 Yours with many thanks
