3 Dear Isie
5 Thank you for your letter. I wrote yesterday in answer to one from
6Lady Innes promising her to arrive at on Saturday night, & come & stay
7with her first for a few days.
9 I shall then likely be going on to my nephew Hudson Findlays farm, but
10I will try to come & spend at least a day with you on my way back. I
11am going to spend some days at Bloemfontein & want to be back here
12under three weeks so shall not have much time to stay as the journey
13takes so long. But its the travelling that does me most good, the
14fresh air without the exertion of walking makes me so fit.
16 It will be so nice to see you all again. Yours in haste in catch post.
18 Tant Sannie de van de Achterveld
19 Olive.
