Legend
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. This letter was probably sent to T. Fisher Unwin, who had visited South Africa before Schreiner left it in December 1913.

9 I have been trying every where to get a most valuable little book
10published by you, called "German Social Democracy during the war", by
11Bevan. They say they cannot get it for me. Could you possibly let me
12have a copy? I specially wish to give it to someone. I am sorry I did
13not meet you when you were in Africa, but there was a misunderstanding.

15 Yours faithfully
