The Project is grateful to University College London (UCL) and its Library Services for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Special Collections. The month and year have been written on this short letter in an unknown hand. It is archived together with a letter from Elisabeth Cobb to Pearson and an attached envelope with a postmark of 11 November 1886. Schreiner was resident in Blandford Square from early October to late December 1886, when she left England for Europe.
