The Project is grateful to the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the University of Texas at Austin, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. In the absence of other information, dating this letter has followed Draznin (1992), who has done so by relating its content to other letters in the Olive Schreiner/Havelock Ellis correspondence and considering its place in the sequence. Schreiner was resident at two addresses in Hastings from the end of November 1884 to the end of April 1885. The start of the letter and its middle section are now missing.
