Tuesday 18 September 1917

Am posting you the figure of a Native, drawn by a Cotton Merchant friend of mine, from life. I wish I could send you some for Servants. I am sure poor old Day is weary of House keeping without proper help. She has done her BIT.

The horses here are terrible crocks & are cruelly used. You hear the story of putting a small eel down a horse's throat to make him lively well all this is down done by the Jelins here & many worse things besides.
