Olive Schreiner’s letters to Aletta Jacobs are part of the International Archives for the Women’s Movement collections, to whom thanks are due for access to the microfilm of the Aletta Jacobs Papers. The address this postcard was sent to is on its front. Schreiner was resident at 9 Porchester Place from April 1917 to August 1920, when she returned to South Africa.
1Thank you so much for your letter. Yes, it is hard to think I shall
2never see Europe again. I have longed so to visit Italy & Holland &
3other places, but now I leave for Africa on the 13th of August. I cant
4help hoping that perhaps somehow you will visit Africa again some day.
5How glad I shall be to see you.
7Yours with love
8Olive Schreiner
