1 Hanover
2 March 1st 1901
4 I was so glad to get your two notes, dear Friend. Has Miss H returned?
5or has she written?
7 We get no news of the external world here, & none is in the papers so
8we are much in the dark. A number of men, belonging to or known in
9this district are in prison at de Aar & are now being tried, but we do
10not know what they are accused of or how it is going with them. It’s
11a strange world. Parties of Boers are said to be about in the
12immediate neighbourhood of the town, but there has been no attack yet
13on the place. Good bye dear friend. I am so glad Miss Greene is better.
14 Cron says he spent such a delightful evening with you. He always
15seems nearer to me when I think of his being with you.
