3 Dear Friend
5 I enclose you rather an interesting letter of Miss Ford’s.
7 You & Miss Molteno must go to see her if ever you go to England, you
8will both love her so much & her sister Bessie.
10 They are inseparable friends & live in a lovely big house near Leeds,
11which is always full of their working men friends. Now that Eastbourne
12is dead to me I feel less than ever that I want to see England again;
13but I long for my friends there.
15 Good night dear.
16 Olive
