1Dear Laddie
3Please if a little box & letter come from me for Dot, see she gets it.
5I have been ill here Should have followed your advice & staid at
6Kensington. This place is twice as cheap & very nice, but its no
7savings to be ill. I find my heart won’t stand the Hill. I’m so
8glad to know you have Dot with you now Ursula is gone. I know she’ll
9have a splendid time. I am perhaps returning to Kensington Mansions on
10Saturday Will wire if
12^I do. Olive^
