1 Thank you for your letter, dear one. I did return the letter from your
2brother Percy. Have you got it?
4 No I don’t think its public affairs are breaking me down. It’s my
5heart the Doctors say. That dear Dr Mortimer who came to see you is
6attending me & so kind & good. I still have to sleep if I sleep at all
7sitting up in a chair.
9 Good bye. I am hoping for some fresh news from Pretoria tomorrow. All
10good be with you.
12 Olive
14 I have read Miss Greenes dear letter over & over.
