My dear Nellie -

Just a line to say that I have received your letter[4] -

The doctor has kept me in bed a great part of the day -

On Monday he proposes to tell me what I am to do next -

I am glad to know that Willie[5] [p. 2] is getting on so well - Doubtless also he is pleased with the new visits -

I heard yesterday that Joe Whistler[6] and his wife[7] came in the steamer with Mr Heinemann's cousin[8] -

Have you seen them yet?

I must send this off - and write no more now! -

Affy
