4 Dear Mr Kallenbach
6 I wonder if you got my note yesterday the other day saying I was
7coming to see you all
9 I did come yesterday afternoon as a friend offered to drive me in her
10motor car. The boy told me you were all in, but when I had waited for
11some time he said you were out. I went out & walked up & down for
12three-quarters of an hour & came back but you'd not come in so I came
13home I'll come again some other afternoon Are you generally out about
14three o'clock. Or might I find you all in at that time I hope Mr
is better.
17 I hope There is more bloodshed in South Africa! Some people are never
18happy if they are not killing other people
20 Yours very sincerely
21 Olive Schreiner
