Legend
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 reference to a version in the Lafitte Letters typescript in the British Library. Schreiner was resident at two addresses in Hastings from the end of November 1884 to the end of April 1885.

Schreiner's 'my article if I wrote it' refers to a paper she was to have presented to the Men and Women?s Club but never completed. Draznin's (1992) version of this letter is in some respects different from our transcription.
