5 Dear Dollie Radford
7 I have wanted for so many years to see you. I can't travel by tube on
8account of my heart, & am leaving for ^Bad^ Nauheim in Germany next
9Tuesday Perhaps we shall have to put off our meeting till my return.
10If your house is close to the train ^omnibus^ perhaps I might run up
11when I have a little spare time & take my chance of finding you in. I
12am so uncertain as to health that I can't make sure appointments.
14 I wonder if you would tell me anything about Eleanor Marx's last years
15& death? No one I have ever met could. Did you see her near the end?
17 Yours always
18 Olive Schreiner
