5 Dear Mr Callenbach
7 Ive not written to you because I've been too tired & unwell to do
8anything in the way of going out that was not absolutely necessary. I
9am going out now to look at a little flat on the Chelsea Embankment, &
10hope I may be able to move there at once, when I will write & ask you
11to come & we can go up the river which is just before my door.
13 I disliked Miss Pankhurst's speech very much, it was all "lime-light"
14& theatrical.
16 Please be sure & tell me when you come how much I owe you.
18 On my way back from Chelsea I am going to that vegetarian place in
19Tottenham court road to see their food.
21 I feel so interested in that young Jew. His pictures show real talent.
22I shall try to get some of my friends to buy some.
24 ^Kind regards to Mr & Mrs Gandhi
26 Yours sincerely
27 Olive Schreiner^
