4 Dear Fan
6 We shall arrive in Cape Town Monday evening. Cron says he will only be
7able to remain in Cape Town till Friday, so I shall be going back with
8him to de Aar. I may not be able to come out to St James on unless my
9chest is better, but try to come & have lunch with me & then we’ll
10go out to the parliament together.
12 I hope you found all flourishing when you got home, & both feel better
13than when you started. I think you are still at Eastcliff as Dr Brown
14told me you were going to stay on longer than usual this year, so
15address there. Love to all.
17 Your little sister
