Legend
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 postmark on this postcard is illegible; the addressee and the address it was sent to are on its front. Schreiner was resident at Porchester Place from early April 1917 until August 1920, when she left Britain for South Africa. Ursula Schreiner was married in July 1917.
