6 We got here this morning, dear, after a, to me, unbrokenly delightful
7journey. The scenery unreadable a the was was delightful as soon as
8you got beyond Mafikeng. We were all very happy together, the
9attendance & food first rate. Here & Fan & I have a nice room together
10& the two girls & Hanny a very large one. We just had lunch in the
11huge dining room, & are soon going out to see the falls. The smoke as
12seen from the distance was very fine. If only you were here, dear.
14 Good bye Laddie
15 I’m flourishing well.
16 Love to you
