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, where it was sent from and the place it was sent to onto this extract.
1 …It was a nice little bit of sunshine you coming today, dear one. I
2only wish there had not been that worrying business as the cause. I
3had such a beautiful drive home & enjoyed it so much. I was just
4beginning to get a bit stale, but your visit & this ^long^ lovely drive
5have made me quite fresh. Ollie was good coming home. It will be very
6beautiful if I can get any one to feed the mierkats & come for a
7couple of days to you…

9 You look so tired, the dear eyes are quite dark. Take things as easy
10as you can at De Aar. What does anything help if you overwork. Good
11night. I’ve just had such a happy day…
