I sent you by last mail the paper on the Political Situation here. I
7: shall send you a few copies in pamphlet form soon. Do you think you
8: could get them noticed any where
It’s really too bad that you English should send out your bloated
11: millionaires to eat us up! And the English people backing them &
12: calling it "extending the Empire"!
14: ^Do you know there’s hope of my getting a first class post for Bob
15: out here? I think I shall get a nice situation for Mrs Walters eldest
16: son too.
Edmund Garrett wrote a splendid leader on the woman’s question in
19: the paper ^^last week^^, of which he is the editor out here. Will you if
20: not too much trouble, send the papers I sent you on to Isabelle Ford,
21: I can’t get any more copies.
The paper Schreiner refers to is her The Political Situation
, which Cronwright-Schreiner read out as a public address in Kimberley Town Hall in August 1895. Edmund Garrett's 'splendid leader on the woman?s question' has not been established. Rive's (1987) version omits part of this letter and is also in a number of respects incorrect.
