6My dear old man
8I got here yesterday after a most delightful journey. It was the first
9time I’d been out of London for 9 months except that drive I went
10with you & Dot to Harrow on the Hill, & when I went on the bus to St
11Albans. It was delightful May Murray met me here at the station. She &
12her husband are most kind they live in a charming little house. I like
13the place from what I see of it. It is not wildly stimulating like my
14beloved East Coast, but not at all relaxing. The country about reminds
15me of the country near Grahamstown. There are no great bare mountains
16as in the North.
18Yesterday was splendid To-day there are quick showers of rain & then
19bright sunshine.
21Tell me when Oliver goes. I am so thank-ful to be out of London.
23Good bye, dear.
26May Murray has just got her Cape Post, & the latest news ^there^ is that
27our Dot is engaged to Paul Methuen!! How ridiculous people are.
