7 Would you do me a great favour. I have written to ask Mrs Austin if
8she could kindly give me the address for ?Whitevarburg roofs but I
9don’t know her address or even her husbands name. Could you address
10the letter fully for me, & see she gets it?

12 I was so surprised to hear from Guy’s letter that Arthur had gone to
13Natal. Is he going to a situation there or has he gone for a change of
14air. Guy doesn’t say you & the little son went too, so I suppose you
15are still at the Highlands. Tell Guy I’ll send some unreadable as
16soon as I have some more. I’d just given my last away when I got his
17letter.
