Free State Archives Depot: The Steyn collection contains the extensive official and private papers of the last president of the Orange Free State, Martinus Theunis Steyn, and his wife Rachel Isabella (Tibbie) Steyn. It includes many letters from Emily Hobhouse to Mrs Steyn, and among are a handful of letters from Olive Schreiner to Emily Hobhouse; these are handwritten copies made by Hobhouse. There is a detailed finding aid for the Steyn collection. The Renier Collection is also a huge one, and results from the collections activities of Renier himself, and again there is a finding aid. The Wessels collection is small and there is no finding aid. The Free State Archives Depot website is part of the National Archives of South Africa, and this is difficult to use and not very helpful in accessing information, as its search facilities do not cover the large majority of its manuscript holdings. Accessing such information really requires visiting or a detailed email inquiry. A list of holdings is available at the Information Desk and online in the archive.
