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. Cronwright-Schreiner comments that the ‘this’ Olive Schreiner has just received was from Eleanor Marx.

4I have just received this. Please go and see them and tell me just how
5Aveling is. If he gets dangerously ill I must go. If the Avelings are
6very hard-up I must try to send them something, but I am hard-up
7myself just now.
