5My dear Mr Harris
7I shall try to have the thing copied by Thursday morning, if I’m not
8too overrun by visitors.
10I want £20 for it. I don’t think I could let it go for less It has
11cost me so much. Perhaps it won’t be worth that to the Fortnightly.
13You will promise to send it back to me at once if it’s not?
15Yours sincerely
16Olive Schreiner
18It’s very long.
'The thing' that Schreiner refers to is one of her allegories, sent to Harris as then-editor of the Fortnightly Review. In the event it did not publish it because of its length. See "The sunlight lay across my bed: Part I - Hell" New Review Vol 1, no 11, April 1890, pp.300-309; and "The sunlight lay across my bed: Part II - Heaven", New Review Vol 1, no 12, May 1890, pp.423-431.
