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.
1To J. T. Lloyd.
2Kimberley, 2nd Mar.
4What is the feeling at Johannesburg, that Rhodes will regain his power
5and carry out his Transvaal schemes or not? Answer this if you are
6able. At first I felt his plans were at an end, but now I have a kind
7of feeling that he has bought a certain backing in England. Tell me
8what you know on this question.
