9My dear Laddie,
11I hope I will see you are looking better. I have just had a letter
12from Mrs Ochs She should sends many greetings to you from herself &
13Daphne & her nephew. Miss MacDonald is back with them. I have been
14pretty ill dear. This air poisons my lungs. If only I can get through
15this winter, without having to give in altogether. I cant go to Italy
16I couldn’t stand the strain of not getting letters or news from
17Africa. I cant go to Africa, the heat would be worse than the fog here,
18 I seem to have my face to a wall without an opening.
20If only the Gods who shape life would let people die when they can’t
21work & are no use.
23Good bye dear. Send the enclosed to Ollie
