4 Dear Friend
6 I wonder if you are coming out you will have to make a close & hard
7bargain with Logan if you do take this place. He is a Jew in the bad
10 I enclose a note of Cron’s which will give you all his news. Destroy
11when read. I think he is happy at de Aar, the heat is the draw back.
12He feels it as every one must, even the strongest man, but in many
13ways his health is better than ever before. He never has that unending
14rheumatism & head ache he had when we were first married.
16 I am getting better here. Love to Alice, share this note with her.
17I’ll write a real letter next week.
