1New College,
3Sep 27 / 93
5Dear Mr Hunt
7I enclose a cheque for £39 for the ticket (that’s right isn’t it?) & I
8shall be glad if you will send me lables. Also would you very kindly
9tell me how I am to address my boxes, which I shall send up by train
10form from here for the comp railway to ?devirer. Are they to be
11addressed to the Dunottar Castle, & wh how soon can I send them, I
12would like to send them off next Monday or Tuesday to have them off my
13mind. I lost two boxes when last I went out, ^they said they must have
14been wrongly addressed,^ so want to besure I’m doing right.
16Give my love to Mrs Hunt, & thank her much for her note.
18Yours sincerely
19Olive Schreiner

23I want to take a couple of hundreds or £150 with me, on board. Can I
24pay it in at your office here, & draw it in Cape Town?
