6My dear Mr Kent

8I have pitched my tent here for the winter.

10Could you send me the MS. I troubled you with some time ago. I am not
11going to publish it, or any of my stupid lucubrations of last year,
12but to begin every thing afresh.
13
14I hope you are translating another of Balzac’s novels for us.
15
16Don’t trouble about sending the MS ^at once^ if you haven’t it at
17hand. I expect you like myself have such accumulations of papers that
18it is not always easy to fish out anything at once.

20Yours very sincerely,
21Olive Schreiner
