5Dear Mrs Mochelles
6
7I am so sorry to hear your husband is so unwell. This cold & thaw &
8damp is enough to make any one ill. I set you today to come & inquire
9how your husband was, but when I got to Hyde Park Corner I turned back.
10 The cold was too intense.
11
12I do hope he will be better soon.

14Yours ever
15Olive Schreiner
