Her time she writes is fully occupied for she keeps no maid. She can see by the letters Ellie sends her that she does not keep good health, she thinks that if she came out Australia it would do her good, if William thinks the change would be beneficial she is most welcome to have a home with them. She asks if he ever sees her brother George because she has not had an answer. She enquires after John and his family.
