[letterhead]4I have been wondering if your first hurried visit to Africa satisfied your curiosity, and inquisitive research into Botanical and Geological matters, or whether you may not be induced to pay another visit to the unexplored regions of Africa. If you should come to Cape Town I will promise you a hearty welcome if I should be at home.I sincerely trust that your health continues satisfactory and that your Daughters with their families are enjoying a similar blessing.And now with our united kind regards I remain your trulyJas Wyllie.
