3 I am still at Aunt Fan’s as I have not yet been able to find a room.
4As soon as I am settled you must come & spend a long day with me. Do
5come & see me here if ever you are able. I will try to come & see
6Effies little home some day, but am less & less able to walk: the
7angina comes on sometimes when I am only walking across the room, it
8is worse than in England. I made a big mistake coming out here, but I
9can’t go back now. My love to you dear.
