4 Dear ones
6 My evening with you was lovely. The pleasantest time I’ve spent
7since I came to Cape Town. Shall I see you at Lucy’s? Don’t please
8dear ones, mention Mrs Browns name in connection with me, to anyone
to Mrs Murray. I think I drank up the milk of the whole
10family last night, but I did have such a splendid meal! I like to
11think of you all there. I’m going to wear my stuff as a scarf on the
12hot nights up country when one needs a light wrap.
