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 where it was sent from onto this extract, with its date implied by its place in the sequence of extracts. He comments that Olive Schreiner’s letter had concerned her friends the Lloyds, and that, referring to The Homestead, she had conjectured that it was the stables next door that affected her asthma.
