4 My darling Anna
6 I shall arrive in Cape Town on the evening of Friday the 21st if I am
7able to get my packing done. I am going through & burning old letters
8& papers, & its sad work; it's like burning your own heart.
10 Dear you'll never know how much your love & friendship has been it to
11me. You came into my life just in the loneliest point, when I most
12needed it
14 Good bye, dear.
16 I'm so thankful Miss Hobhouse is better. No place would have suited
17her like Bergvleit. Cron tells me there was an account in the papers
18of a meeting at Bergvleit. I didn't see it. I didn't see it. I've not
19read the papers lately I seem to have lost my hold on things.
