Legend
When Cronwright-Schreiner prepared The Letters of Olive Schreiner, with few exceptions he then destroyed her originals. However, some people gave him copies and kept the originals or demanded the return of these; and when actual Schreiner letters can be compared with his versions, his have omissions, distortions and bowdlerisations. Where Schreiner originals have survived, these will be found in the relevant collections across the OSLO website. There is however a residue of some 587 items in The Letters for which no originals are extant. They are included here for sake of completeness. However, their relationship to Schreiners actual letters cannot now be gauged, and so they should be read with caution for the reasons given.

4How splendid your Ibsen Introduction is! The only bad line is about
5Congreve, and I believe it gave you more satisfaction to write than
6all the rest. You simply grunted with satisfaction. ... I feel so
7loving to everyone. I love Mrs. - . I'm going to begin loving everyone
8again. That's the worst of me.
