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, and that it concerns a golf trip of his. The book that Schreiner was ‘writing at’ is From Man to Man.
1 …I do hope it will be fine for the trip to Cradock next week. Be
2sure to stay at the Victoria Hotel; it’s beautiful now: I should
3like to spend a month there if it wasn’t so expensive. The beautiful
4loving letters from all my dear friends today seems to have made me so
5happy & excited, I can hardly write at my book…

7 You must go to Cradock, dear…
