1 De Aar
2 July 1910
4 Dear Betty
6 I enclose Mrs Murray’s note to me which will tell you about her &
7Anna Purcell. It is still cool here, but we’ve had one or two of our
8terrible winds.
10 I wish you & Alice would come out soon & go & live somewhere among the
11natives: you could be of such use to them. The Dutch don’t need them
12one any more. They are top-dog, & playing the part of top-dog. Mrs
13Malan has been very ill, but is I see in the papers better.
15 Good bye. My dear love to you.
