Charlotte writes that she is busy preparing for the Sabbath, instructing the women in what to do: "For the two last Sab. I have spoken to them without an interpreter but I talk so badly I fear I shall disgust them. I think however they understand me. I am obliged to speak in very short sentences... I think I make a little progress in the language but it is very little. I have recently completed a vocabulary consisting of Eng. words and Zulu definitions, which I find very useful." Aldin implores James to make a profession of Christianity.
