3I got long letter from May this morning telling me all about Will. I
4won’t let him think I’m coming to see him because he’s ill, but
5I’ll come soon if he doesn’t get quite better: I won’t let him
6see I’m anxious about him at all. I can put on a very jolly air if I
7like!!

10from Ursie that Mrs ?Hony is there & you & she sometimes go for walks.
11You must get as much fresh air as you can.
