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. This short piece of letter text has been dated by reference to information written onto it by Ellis. Schreiner was resident at two addresses in Hastings from the end of November 1884 to the end of April 1885. The beginning and end of the text are missing.

Notation
This small fragment has been torn jaggedly from a sheet of paper; many additional individual words remain at the edges, but no sentence is complete and it is therefore largely unreadable apart from this line of text. The 'Australian thing' is Ellis's projected book, (1922) Kanga Creek Waltham St Lawrence: Golden Cockerell Press. Draznin's (1992) version of the text is in some respects different from our transcription.
