3 Dear Friend
5 I am leaving this next week for Kat River with Mrs Lewis, shall be
6back here about the 25th & shall soon after that before the end of the
7month return to K go to Cape Town with Neta. If you should be well
8enough to go into Cape Town could you please find from Mrs Johnson
9whether she could take me for a few days, & if not Mrs Dempers at
10Burnside Rd, next the chemist might let me have a small room. Please
11explain I may have Neta with me. Also ask price ^day & by the week.^ I
12think I know what your trouble is. I fancy it must be about your young
13sister. Her life will be a ?troublous one I fear poor young soul.
