4Dear Friend, I send you a little story I wrote many years ago. Don’t
5know if I showed it you before. Like it because I first made it up
6when I was a child.

10I am well. I am working. If only I can have quiet & no visitors I
11shall get all the work off my brain in a year or a year & a half. Then
12I can return to the other active sort of work.

14It’s splendid that the Review develops so.

Notation
The ‘little story’ which Schreiner sent to Stead with this letter cannot be established but could have been one of the allegories originally published in the New College Magazine.
