4 Dear Friend
6 Where are you? When are you coming? there are very nice people here
7keeping the hotel here now, some nice simple Germans whom I knew at
8Kimberly called Smit. You would be very comfortable if you came to the
9hotel here, they would give you the best room & be so kind I know. It
10is rather expensive that’s the only draw back.
12 Cron & I are perhaps going to take our meals there after the middle of
13the month as I can’t go on without a servant.
15 All goes well with us, but I am longing so much for news of you. Do
18 Olive
