2Monday night
4Dear Son Oliver
6My hearty congratulations – but I’m not a bit surprised!! I haven’t
7yet seen the B.A. list, Dad wired me you were top. I wonder when you
8will be off to Europe. Oh had I the wings of a little dive there –
9there – away would I fly.
11I’m sure you’ll love it. Perhaps I’ll finish my book some day & come &
12look you up before you return to Africa.
14Thy small
15Aunt Olive
Schreiner stayed in Oudeberg from the end of January to the end of February 1911, and thus the dating of this letter. Only a typescript of the letter, made by May Murray Parker, is now extant.
