3I should like ?ber to come with you tomorrow evening, & shall be here
4if you come at four. I was sorry after I got back thinking you
5hadn’t had any supper, & it would be so late when you got home.
7I am somewhat worried today about other people’s affairs. I should
8like to lie down & sleep only I’ve no time.
10I like that article on women very much.
12I’m glad Miss Jones is coming this afternoon
14O. Schreiner
'That article on women' cannot be established, but some time later Ellis published a relevant review: Havelock Ellis (1887) 'The Changing Status of Women' Westminster Review October 1887. Draznin's (1992) version of this letter is in some respects different from our transcription.
