Recd your pretty postcard today. I think it is such a lovely one. the exhibition building is a very pretty one. I must try and get some of the Christchurch Exhibit. It looks lovely both by day and night. This postcard is a picture of the principal street of our town. The coach is also there. There is a coach going to Blenheim from Nelson one day & back to Nelson the next. It goes through Havelock and can be seen in the picture. The place I have marked xx is the Town Hall , the Post Office is next to it but only parts of it can be seen in this card. I am so sorry you have been so ill. The greatest illness I have had was measles but these are not so very bad. We have been having very hot weather lately.
