4 Dear Mr Kallenbach
6 I am so sorry I was out when you & Mr Tippet came. I can't come in the
7morning as I don't generally come down from my room till 1, lunch time,
8 as I do my writing & reading in the morning, & but I expect there's
9not much soup given out in the afternoon. However I'll try to come
10some afternoon.
12 Things don't seem very bright in India as they are having to pass new
13repressive laws there.
15 How will it all end?
17 Yours very sincerely
18 Olive Schreiner
