1Llandrindod Wells
5Dear, I’m so anxious to know just how the boy is getting on Do, busy
6as you are send me a P. card.
8I’ve just heard that poor Sir James Sievewright who was staying here
9at an hotel went quite mad yesterday, & was sent off last night to a
10big lunatic asylum in London last night the doctors here certifying
11him as insane. Its a sad ending. Life’s a big tragedy.
13I hope you are all feeling pretty fit. I am anxious to know where your
14new quarters are, as you had to leave your flat.
16Good bye, dear.
