Legend
The Project is grateful to Mark Samuels Lasner for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which appears with the permission of the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection on loan to the University of Delaware Library. The recipient of the letter was possibly W.T. Stead or Oscar Wilde, as editors to whom Schreiner sent allegories to consider for publication.

The envelope for returning the allegory is no longer attached. The particular allegory Schreiner refers to cannot be established, as she was writing a number at this time.
