1 My darling
3 I did not go to the Burial Ground today as I had your letter. I will
4meet you at the station tomorrow ^on Sunday^ afternoon next about 2.30.
5If I’m not there wait. I shall be sure to come. Of course if it’s
6raining we can’t go. Darling you didn’t understand about Guy. What
7Will longs for is to help you. Whether it help's Guy or not doesn’t
8make any difference to him; What if it eases your dear mind, to think
9you had done all for him that you think may help. If I only had the
10money I would give it you at once, though I’m quite sure it
11wouldn’t help Guy, but it would be the only way I could help you;
12you, who have done so much for us all, whose life is so precious to
13Will & me; as it is to hundreds.
15 Olive
