4 Dear old Sister
6 Please send me back Miss Colenso’s letter, as I haven’t answered
7it. Have you good news of Will & Dot?
9 Did I tell you that my dear friend Lady Constance Lytton has become a
10great suffragette? & the wonderful thing is that she has got old Lady
quite to sympathize with her, who is very conservative even
12more so than Lady Loch!
14 Its so hot here today, over 100 one feels quite stupefied.
16 Good When do you go to Kalk Bay?
18 Good bye, dear old sister. I hope all goes well with you.

22news of him?
