1 Sunday morning
3 Dear Laddie
5 Have you heard of Oliver?
7 I sent you to 59 Cadogan Place a little bottle of the ?Pain-Balm I
8find so useful.
10 I get quite lame in one leg & foot sometimes but when I rub it with
11this I get all right. I wish I could rub the dear old foot myself. One
12thing I can do is to rub. Ettie & Miss Molteno & Cron & all my friends
13say I can take pain from them with rubbing as no one else can. I
14expect its because I know so well what pain is. Send for me if ever
15you have bad pain.
17 I’m so glad you are with Dot today & having nice weather
19 Your small sister
20 Olive
