1 Hotel Pavillon
2 Wednesday
4 Dear Miss Smith
6 I've got a cold so can't go to our bay for a dip. I'm afraid I've kept
7you from making another plan for this lovely morning.
9 I know you'll be sorry for me when you hear my hotel is going to be
10closed on Friday. The man's just written me a note to say he can't
11make it pay. I'm liked an evicted Irishman. I'm going to look at a
12couple of the quiet Hotels here & if they don't suit me will leave for
13Paris or Florence on Friday. It was very beautiful yesterday but I
14liked best seeing your mother. She's like a fountain of strength.
16 Good bye dear beautiful friend
17 Olive Schreiner
