1 Darling I had such a funny feeling when you left the other evening
2that I must run after you, that perhaps we would never see each other
3again. Its just because I’m ill I expect. Darling do take care of
4yourself in this awful awful weather. Can’t you put off your journey
5till its cooler. Its too awful. Its as though death hung over one
