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. Schreiner was resident in Fitzroy Street in late May and June 1884. This note was not posted but left for Ellis with Schreiner's landlady or in a public area for him to collect, with just his name written on the associated envelope. In the absence of other information, dating it has followed Draznin (1992), who has done so by relating its content to other letters in the Olive Schreiner/Havelock Ellis correspondence.
1I have to go out to to see an American lady. I will be back by four.
2If I should be a few minutes late wait for me. Eh?

Notation
Draznin's (1992) version of this note is in some respects different from our transcription.
