1 Hanover
2 July 17th 1902
4 Dear One,
6 I wonder if you can have gone to England with Miss Greene. But if you
7have this will be sent on to you.
9 Cron has got a big rebel case sent into his hands legally, a man of
10this district who surrendered with Fouche’s commando at Cradock is
11being tried for murder. The preliminary comes on tomorrow; but there
12are so many people who can prove he was not a ringleader that I hope
13the magistrate will squash the trial. If he does not it will have to
14go to the judge & there will be much expense for his family who are
15poor people; but I feel no doubt he will get off.
17 All goes well with us as of old we have not yet got into our little
18home, but hope to next week
20 Yours always, & wondering how you are & where you are
21 Olive
