5Dear Mr Hodgson
6
7Thanks so much for your letter, just received. I will return the MSS
8when I meet you in London & we can talk about them. I’ve come down
9here to rest with my friend Dr Corthorn till the 20th or more likely
10the 23rd of this month when we return to 30 St Mary Abbotts Terrace,
11where I shall be for a couple of months or a month certainly. I hope
12you will be in London during part of that time.

14I love this place because there are motor busses & one can drive to
15Folkstone & back every day; a distance of seven or eight miles. In
16heaven every one will have a motor. The only thing that spoils one’s
17perfect bliss in a motor ^now^ is the thought of all the people who are
18walking!!

20My brother will be here in about 2 weeks’ time, I hope. I much want
21to hear the ins & outs of Cape affairs from him; one learns so little
22from the papers

24Yours ever
25Olive Schreiner
