7Would you do me the great favour of address^ing^ the enclosed letter to
8the best land ^agent^ in Victoria West. We should like to get a farm
9some where in that part. Do you know if any farm near the railway in
10the neighbourhood of Nel’s Port at which Iwe might get? This part of
11the country does not suit my health at all.

13It would be very nice to be nearer you all. As I hope you are all well.
14 I should so much like to see your little ones.
