Richon-le- Zion We can see the "Minarets of
Jaffa from here, the country between all vineyards & orange groves-
Weather fine again & the POPPIES are in bloom my Pen wont write so I give it best.
Sorry to hear of Mrs Bloomfields death
I enclose you a card from local Jews Hotel.
All nations have settlements here, decent houses, &
Jaffa is a modern town but the Turks have pulled up the Railway line- Post this with my love.
