4 My dear Fan
6 Theo is very well temperature 99 quite normal he only woke up once
7during the whole night. Reads the papers all day, & says his heart
8hasn’t felt so well for years. I suppose its the quiet resting in
9bed. He’s had only that one attack of angina, & it wasn’t so
10severe as Het & I have continually: but I am anxious about his heart.
12 Mr Sutton seemed to miss Kittie very much & I think has gone back to K
13W town as he wired Mr Logan to send his letters there.
15 I got a wire from poor old Will this morning to know how Theo was. It
16was too wicked of Katie Stuart to go and trouble him, but God has
17withheld from some people understanding.
19 Poor old Theo was so pleased at your writing
21 Good bye dear old sister
22 Olive
24 ^Cron’s got a very good servant at de Aar who cooks beautifully for
25him so my minds quite at rest about him.^
