6 I got a nice letter from old John X today. Do you know whether this
7movement of the Uitlanders Committee is real, or if Rhodes is at the
8back of it; trying to get the Uitlanders in his hand?? Try to find out
9for me. Farrely is a great scoundrel & was always said at Johannesburg
10to be a Rhodes man. I should like to work with them if they are
11sincere but against them if they are Rhodesmen laying a trap.

13 Neither Mr nor Mrs Sauer has written to me. I have heard nothing of
14them since I left Cape Town. Mrs S has not yet handed on the MS to
15Marchand.

17 Did Mrs Steytler write to you about the things for America I wrote to
18her about. I’ve no asthma but my heart is giving me great pain.
