I wish you could hear of
another Lodger.
Your Papa reached home yesterday
about dinner time. We were
surprised to learn from
him that he had been to
Sydney and had seen you
I hope you will excuse the
short note being Saturday
rather a busy day with me
all unite in kindest love
and believe Me
My dear James

Your aff. Mother
