6 Dear Mr Lloyd

8 Thank you for your letter. The reason I was so anxious to see you,
9apart from the pleasure of a talk with you - was that I have written a
10tiny thing, & I wanted you to to read it & give me your true opinion
11on it. Its from the standpoint of the Con. Objector & your advice
12would be valuable to me. If you can come, please do, but not if it
13puts out other more important work or is taxing you to too much It
14would only take you three minutes to read it, but I want to take talk
15it over with some one who knows more about the condition of affairs
16^exactly^ than I do.

18 Yours very sincerely
19 Olive Schreiner
