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. There are some differences between this transcription and the version that appears in The Letters…. Cronwright-Schreiner comments that the reference is to a small girl who sometimes kept Olive Schreiner company and helped with her chores.
