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.

4We must arrange to meet somewhere for lunch. Cron would so much like
5you to come. Could you come to Evans' in Oxford Street where we
6generally go to get our lunch? The room is so nice and airy and hot...
7 Cron is so sweet, he is going to pay all my passage money to the
8Cape, so I am quite at rest on business matters.
