9Dear Mr Hodgson
11I must write to you at once. I am in great distress, my friend says
12the Admiralty are very angry they say his invention is being talked
13about every where, & my friend has written to ask me whether I have
14told people what it was. Now I don’t understand at all what it is,
15so I co & you are the only person to whom I have mentioned that I had
16a friend who was making one. Do write & tell me at once that I h you
17have not mentioned to any one that I said I had a friend making one. I
18should never have mentioned even the fact I had a friend making any
19invention but I thought I could trust you.
21Yours ever
22Olive Schreiner
