1 Darling, the likeness is beautiful my-old-little-girl-Ettie-sister of
2Witterberg it looks like.
4 I am going to come out one day this week or next week & if you &
5Robert & the children would meet me at Somerset West, we might go to
6Vander Stells old garden & then I might come home the same night.
7I’ve had my likeness taken by Barnard. He took me for nothing but I
8will send you two.
