1 I arrived here yesterday, and my first task is to assure my dear sister of my welfare and increasing confidence in the success of my undertaking.
2 You may deem me romantic, my dear sister, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend.
3 One by one, her brothers and sister died; and her mother, with the exception of her neglected daughter, was left childless.

9 My wife and my sister will never recover from their horror.
10 You, perhaps, regard her as your sister, without any wish that she might become your wife.
11 But I will endeavour to detail these bitter circumstances to you, my dear sister; and while I am wafted towards England and towards you, I will not despond.
12 I'll telephone my sister Catherine.

15 The sister Catherine sat down beside me on the couch.
