4 Dear Mary,

6 I shall certainly be leaving for Cape Town next Saturday night &
7before shall reach Cape Town on Monday morning I am going to Mrs
8Purcell
. My chest is so very fit I hope I may be able to stay more
9than the one day perhaps a week or ten days. But don't put off coming
10to see me too late. I dont want to go away without seeing you & I
11can't come out to you.

13 I shall be up at the Highlands seeing my mother most part of the day,
14but in the evenings shall always be at Mrs Purcell's. But let me know
15when you can be there & I'll try to be there.
