The Project is grateful to the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the University of Texas at Austin, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. The date has been derived from the postmark on this postcard, as has the address it was sent to. It was ?posted at sea? and received at Southampton on 23 August 1920, and there is a picture of the Balmoral Castle Royal Mail Steamer on its front.
