1New College,
4Dear Mr Hunt
6I sent off yesterday 5 packages.
82 tin trunks, 1^wooden^ packing case, & one 1 canvas covered large
9wooden box, & deck chair.
11They promised here they would be delivered at the docks without fail
12this evening (Wednesday).
14Two other packages for the cabin are also being sent straight to the
15ship. One a large picture & the other a small parcel or box, but I
16don’t know when these will arrive. Thanks much for offer about
17compartment in train, ^but^ I do not yet know how many of my friends are
18going. A party will have breakfast with me on Saturday morning at
19Morleys, but I don’t know how many will go on with me to Southampton.
21Yours with many thanks
22Olive Schreiner
