4 Dear Mrs Murray
6 I seemed to see so little of you when I was last in town. I hope if I
7do come down this Xmas I shall see more of you.
9 I have given up all hope of seeing Betty & Miss Greene, the weather is
10already here so trying with wind dust & heat, that if they did come
11they would not be able to stay more than one day. I quite expect to
12hear Betty has run back to her beloved Switzerland any one of these
15 I am not feeling up to writing a real letter about anything, but am
16sending you this line just because you’ve been so much in my mind
17the last days.
19 Yours ever affectly
20 Olive Schreiner
