Legend
The Extracts of Letters to Cronwright-Schreiner were produced by Cronwright-Schreiner in preparing The Life and The Letters of Olive Schreiner. They appear on slips of paper in his writing, taken from letters that were then destroyed; many of these extracts have also been edited by him. They are artefacts of his editorial practices and their relationship to original Schreiner letters cannot now be gauged. They should be read with considerable caution for the reasons given. Cronwright-Schreiner has written the date and where it was sent from onto this extract.
1 …I am writing the article for the Cape Times re Taal &c. But it will
2bring the hornet’s nest about my ears again… I’m so glad you
3liked my story. It’s funny I care more for your opinion of my work
4than any one else’s in the world!...
