1 9 Blandford Sq
3 Dear Mr Parker
5 I take the liberty of sending you the enclosed. Do you know of any
6people who might be likely to care to attend the lectures? I believe
7that H Hinton is quite genuine on the purely intellectual side. He has
8nothing to live on. I am very anxious he should get some subs-cribers.
9I fear it is not likely you will know of any one, but could think of
10no one but you to whom I could write.
12 Excuse my troubling you.
14 Yours Sincerely
15 Olive Schreiner
Schreiner's 'the enclosed' refers to a one-page advertisement for a series of lectures on 'four dimensional space' to be given by Howard Hinton, which is attached to this letter.
