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. Content shows that this PPS to a letter was written from England and refers to a lecture tour undertaken in 1887 by Ettie Schreiner (later Stakesby Lewis) as a high ranking South African officer in the temperance organisation the Good Templars; thus its dating. The actual letter it is a PPS to is not in the Stead collection and presumably no longer exists.

4I have another request. My eldest sister is here from Africa. She has
5lately been lecturing in Australia & attending a temperance congress
6in America. She is a very remarkable woman & very much interested in
7mission work.
9One of her great wishes is to meet you while in England. Could you
10possibly make time to call on her on Tuesday morning or, if not, at
11any other time which would be quite convenient to you.
13^Her address is 14 Alfred Place W.C.^
14quite close to this.
