5 Dear Mrs Drew

7 Thank you for your letter. Yes I shall still be in London in two weeks
8when I hope I shall see you I wish I could share your happy feelings
9about South Africa & the native question; to me things grow darker &
10darker there.

12 I don't know if I told you I was in Schlesien in ^the extreme east of^
13Germany visiting my friend the Countess von Moltke when the war broke
14out My heart feels paralyzed over this war. It is all so wicked;
15infinitely wickeder than the Boer war.

17 Yours ever
