5Dear Mr Unwin,
7Thanks for your letter. Mrs Schreiner asks me to say that “Peter
8Halket” has not been sold to France, or any other country; nor have
9any of the ^her^ works been sold to France or Germany. “Dreams” and
10“The African Farm” have appeared in German, but none have been
11translated into French that she knows of. She hopes you’ll be able
12to conclude the proposed arrangement about “P. Halket”, and will
13be glad if you can sell the rights of translation of any of her books
14to any country. She has a cable from Sweden about “P. Halket”.
16She will be glad With regard to the Dutch edition of “P. Halket”,
17she will think the matter over and write to you later.
19Yours very truly,
20S.C. Cronwright-Schreiner
