5 Dear Hannie
7 I am most distressed because Cron is coming next week, & I can’t
8hear of any boarding house in town where I can get an upstairs room.
9It will be so hard not to see him after he has been away so long.
11 Do you know of one ^a boarding house perhaps^ up Kloof St way where the
12people are not too great jingoes, & where I could get a good room. If
13you do please write me dear.
15 I suppose you are quite full up? If you could have let me & Cron have
16that up stairs room it would have been so nice, because it’s so
17terrible now to be among jingoes, but I suppose it was only empty
18because of the holidays.
20 Good bye dear. The Transvaalers are not all dead yet.
21 Olive
23 Love to dear little Keetje
