8 I am leaving for Cape Town tomorrow night, & shall stay at my brother
9Will's till New Year & after that at Muizenberg. The heat & height
10here are very trying - the drought grows worse & worse. We have had no
11drop of rain for 9 months. I hope I shall see something of you & Mrs
12Merriman
when Parliament begins & you come down.

14 Yours sincerely
