1Dear Sister Katie
3I fear you will find me a very bad correspondent.
5I dislike letter writing so much, but I am often thinking of you all
6at Fraserberg, & wishing to see you.
8Dear Alice is here this afternoon, she is looking very well & strong &
9Fred seems to me to be growing every day.
11I am leaving on Monday morning for Matjesfontein. If you write to me
12please address C/O J Logan Esq Matjesfontein. It will not be so very
13far from Frazerburg, & I hope to make a run of a few days up to you
14before I leave Africa.
16Good bye. My best love to Eliza, Maggie, Emma & yourself from your
17loving sister
