5 Dear Jan

7 I got a letter from my niece Mrs. Hudson Findlay from Pretoria She
8says – "We often see Mrs. Smuts. She is doing such splendid work
9here. We all love her. She is a brave brave woman." I thought
10perhaps you would like to hear this of my dear Isie. I hope you have
11quite got over your touches of fever.
