4 Dear Mrs Murray

6 I have lost Miss Hobhouse’s address. Would you kindly address & post
7the enclosed letter to her. Are you still going up this month to
8Johannesburg? I wish you had passed while I was at Matjesfontein &
9might have seen you. I unreadable here Miss Molteno & Miss Greene are
10not to be here for another year! It’s terrible they should stay away
11so long; & yet it’s best. I don’t quite see what they would do
12here. Miss Molteno seems splendidly well from her letters.

14 Miss Hobhouse sent me such a lovely warm light shawl. I wish I could
15have gone up to stay with her. It always seems to me she was the only
16one of us all who really did succeed in doing something practically to
17aid in the war.
18
19 I hope you will enjoy your time in Johannesburg if you are going.

21 Yours affectionately
