6Darling Lucy
8I have been so utterly grieved to hear you have had to undergo an
9operation. No one has told me just what it was, but from something
10Anna said some time ago I fear it may be appendicitis. I’m so
11thankful to hear from Miss Greene its over, & that I may hope to hear
12from someone next week that you were able to go home again you dear
13frail body is so ill fitted for such terrible suffering. All I can
14hope is it will have done some permanent good.
16I am longing for the post to come tomorrow that I may have more news
17of you.
19I am so much better since I came back to London that I don’t know
20myself I am taking Urodonal a day which is doing me great good.
22It is very nice to see my old friends again
24^all so loving & so kind. But I never forget my beloved friends at the
25Cape. My heart seems to cling to you more & more.^
27Good bye dear.
