1Dear Mr Unwin,
3I have just heard that Vernon Lee has been very ill & is quite broken
4down in health. Do you know if this is true, & where she is as, I
5should like to write to her if it is so? She is one of the most
6valuable women we have. I should feel it a kindness if you could send
7me a card in reply, if it is true. Please excuse my troubling you
9Yours faithfully
10Olive Schreiner
