4Dear Mr Unwin,

6Thanks for your note of yesterday.

8Mrs Schreiner says will you please make terms with some German firm
9about the translation on the lines you suggest: namely, selling the
10rights & forwarding her the amount less your 10 p.c. commission. As to
11the amount to be asked, she leaves that to you, only stipulating that
12the payment shall be a cash one. She has done nothing at all in the
13matter, not having been well enough. She has no other letters.

15I saw Mr Batler, of Cradock, who promised to call & see you.

17In haste
18Yours very truly,
19S.C. Cronwright Schreiner
