The Project is grateful to the National Library of South Africa (NLSA), Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner xmas, which is part of its Special Collections. On the front of this Xmas card is a picture of an embossed oak leaf with the printed words ‘Friendship firm as oak enduring’; printed inside the card is ‘To you, and all whom time but makes more dear, a Merry Christmas, and a glad New Year! S.K. Cowman, M.A.’ This is followed by two further images of oak leaves and the printed words ‘To wish you the old, old wish: A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’.
