3My dear old Brother

5Have you any news of Oliver? I have not heard from him since he left,
6& have had no letters from Cron for three weeks, which is strange as
7he never misses writing every week, & there seem many steamers coming.

9I hope you are looking better & feeling it. I’m so glad to hear you
10went out of town for the week end.

12I was pretty done last week so I went to the Hodgsons’; it was like
13life from the dead lying there for two days on a chair in the corner &
14breathing the fresh clean air I thought I’d got to the end of every
15thing, but am much better.

17Dear Mrs Percy Molteno has promised to come & fetch me in her motor on
18Friday & take me to Parklands & bring me back on Monday morning by
19motor, so I’ll have no walking.

21Good bye. You don’t know how much you are to me. Take care of
22yourself.
