The Project is grateful to the National English Literary Museum (NELM) for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. Content indicates Schreiner was in De Aar when this letter was written. Schreiner was resident in De Aar from November 1907 until she left South Africa for Britain and Europe in December 1913, but with some fairly lengthy visits elsewhere over this time. The start of the letter is missing.
1 No I shall not be going to Bloemfontein. I had meant to leave for Cape
2Town next week as the heat is getting very great here; but I am just
3staying that I can look after things & so make it easier for Cron to
4go. Aren't you coming to Cape Town this summer?
6 Good bye, dear friend.
7 Love to you all.
8 I'll write a real letter soon.
