2Cape Colony,
3April 2 / 03
5Dear Mr Unwin
7I quite accept your apology with regard to the letter. I am quite sure
8no one in your emply would knowingly tamper with a letter addressed to
9myself, & that it was a mishap.
11I have received all your letters, but please in future always address to me
12at Hanover
13Cape Colony
14South Africa,
15as letters sent to Newlands take 2 days longer to come. My permanent
16address is Hanover.
18Thank you for what you mention re – my American business in your two
19last. I am sure you mean it unselfishly, but pray do not trouble
20yourself in any way with my American concerns.
22All business letters are perfectly safe; I have never found one
23mis-carry. The only letters ever stopped are those from politicians &c
24dealing with politics. Any letter enclosing money ^or concerning
25business^ was quite safe even under marshal law.
27Yours faithfully
28Olive Schreiner
