1 Villa Flandre
2 Thursday Morning
4 Darling Lucy
6 I am driving out to Blauwberg this morning to see my sister for the
7last time. I shall not be back till about half past four or perhaps
8five this afternoon tomorrow early I go out to Muizenberg where my
9unreadable husband’s mother is lying very ill, dying. I shall stay
10with her all day if I can be of any help but Saturday I shall be here
11all day. I hope the weather is not trying to you. Please dear tell
12Betty & Miss Greene of my plans. I long to see your sweet face.
