6My dear Dr Jacobs
8I shall be leaving this in a couple of days Please let me know if it
9will be quite convenient if I come on Monday evening or Tuesday
10morning I plan to spend a couple of ^two or perhaps three^ days with you
11& then go on to England spending a day at the Hague first as I much
12wish to see it. I should not like to pass through Holland without
13seeing you.
15I am sending a wire to-day to know if you will be at home. But am
16writing this in case you should be from home.
18Yours in haste
19With hearty greetings
20Olive Schreiner
