1 Sat. night
3 My dear Mr Pearson
5 I shall be glad to see you on Monday. Will you kindly address this
6letter to Mrs Wilson as I have not put down her address & have
7forgotten it.
9 Yes, I wish you could get away to perfect solitude for a couple of
10years; quite away, where you couldn’t write or get too many letters
11even. I am sometimes afraid that your physical strength may not stand
12permanently the tention under which you live, you are though you look
13very strong. Substantially I am sure we quite agree about the
14attraction & impulse, it is really a question of words – words,
17 What I wanted to see again was not your last paper, but your letter to
20 O. Schreiner
Pearson's 'last paper' is probably 'The Woman's Question', read at the Men and Women's Club meeting in July 1885.
