4 Dear Mary
5
6 It's just possible I may be coming down in Cape Town soon, as the
7doctor has ordered me to get away somewhere for a few days. Oh, I do
8wish you didn't live at Kenilworth, that I could come & stay with you
9for a few days. But you will come & see me dear wherever I am. I am
10sure the 24th means victory for Mr Sauer because all Crews supporters
11are so down spirited.

13 Oh Mary I long so for love & human sympathy I never felt so weak
14before.

16 Good bye my own darling,
17 Olive

19 Cron & Burton feel very hopeful about the election on Saturday they
20think that Rhodes will be beaten, but I don't. Money is ^too strong.^
