4 Dear Fan, I’ve just got all the papers, so don’t trouble to send
7 Cron came back from de Aar today. I got up at six this morning to
8knead my bread which I am glad to say has turned out fine; but I’m
9very sleepy as I took advantage of feeling very well to turn out my
10coal & wood room getting ready for the winter.
12 Is not this Basson case terrible? Perhaps it’s only because I live
13so much alone that it seems to affect me so terribly.
15 Good night, dear. Your little sister sends much love to you all, most
16of all to my old brother.
17 Olive
