The Project is grateful to the National Library of South Africa (NLSA), Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Special Collections. The date has been written on this letter in an unknown hand. Schreiner was resident at Porchester Place from early April 1917 until August 1920, when she left Britain for South Africa.
1 Dear Mrs Solomon
3 I have again mislaid your Tunbridge Wells address I am so anxious to
4know if all is going well with you. D This spring weather is so trying.
5 I am weaker than I have ever felt before & do not know if I shall be
6strong enough to go to Africa in August.
8 Miss Molteno is here & is looking wonderfully well.
10 Good bye. Much love to my dear Daisy when you write to her.
11 Olive Schreiner
13 Do you perhaps know the address of Mr Thema the secretary of the South
14African deputation whom I met at your house? I want to ask
16^him to come to tea?^
