6 It is too bad that I was out when you came. I have been twice out to
7Blauwberg to see my sister Mrs Lewis who is very ill. My niece is
8trying to get a horse for her little trap, each day she thinks she
9will succeed but the horse turns out unsuitable when it comes. As soon
10as she gets one I am coming.

12 It was so sweet of you to come. I hope you are keeping strong.
