The Project is grateful to the National Archives Repository, Pretoria, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Micofilm Collections. Schreiner has mistakenly dated this letter as February 1896, a slip of the pen as she arrived in the UK in late January 1897. The letter is written on printed headed notepaper.

6Dear Friend
8I shall not be in London this week I am sorry to say. We return on
9Saturday evening, & shall be all next week at
1019 Russell Rd
11Kensington ^W^
13I hope this terrible weather is not trying poor old Garrett too much.
15What I wrote about I wrote about Sir George Grey was for yourself
16alone. I wanted you to realize what a great & good son of god he was,
17& the last thing I would have wished would have been to have it
18printed. I do intend to write something on Sir George Grey some day
19but then I shall think long & carefully over it.
21Yours ever
22Olive Schreiner
24I hope you are fit.
