4 Dear Friend
6 Your apricots came today so lovely & fresh. I am not able to eat any,
7but the little boy who brought them from the station I got to take
8round plate fulls to all the poor neighbours who are longing so for
9fruit, in return for some to eat himself. You don’t know what a joy
10it was to me to have them. I am sure fever is so bad here because
11people have no green fresh food. It was better than eating them myself.
12 It was so sweet of you to think of sending them. I can’t make out
13what your address is up there so I send this to Knnilworth Give me
14your full address I am a a little better tonight I have two lovely
15long letters from Cron. His trip seems the greatest
17^success every where: the likes the people & they like him. I am much
18better tonight. ^
