4& sail from Marseilles on Aug 16th ss. "Goth" so please address all letters &c to Jinja P. O. Uganda. I wonder if you would let me know what prospects there are in your part of the world for a young man like me--a Rubber Planter & all round business man--servants & secretarial combined besides outside work. Uganda is not much of a place to take a wife to & although I am not married yet I should like to. I don't want to be another mans servant always but would to strike out on my own.Kindest regardsYours sincerelyH. H.
