8 I’m sorry I was so dead & alive yesterday but I can hardly drag myself
9about. Dr Brown came early this morning, & we went to look for some
10new quarters & to my old place at Tamboer’s Kloof but they were full &
11couldn’t take me. I think I have found a place close to this which is
12drier & warmer. I’m going to give it a try tonight. If not better I’ll
13return to Matjesfontein. Cron arrives tonight tomorrow night. I will
14come & look you up for a moment in your office before I go. I haven’t
