6 I know mother is much to busy to write so drop me a line to tell me
7how Granny is. Did you all get the letters I posted the day I left
8Grahamstown, a little station on the way. I find l left my new nail
9cissors in Grahamstown but have got two new pairs of large ones. One
10must be yours or Aunt Hets, unless the man put me in a pair of large
11cissors in mistake for nail cissors at Parkes. Answer about this.
13 I am clearing out my little room today to be all bright & fresh when
14uncle Cron comes on Monday. I felt so anxious about Grannie last night
15in the night. Please tell me just how she is. Does she take more
16interest in out side matters.
18 Good bye dear, my love to you all including Arthur.
19 Your little Auntie Ol.
21 Thank Aunt Het for pay the money for me I’ll send it tomorrow.
