Legend
The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date of this postcard is provided by the postmark, and the name of the addressee and the address it was sent to are on its front. Schreiner was resident in De Aar from November 1907 until she left South Africa for Britain and Europe in December 1913, with some fairly lengthy visits elsewhere over this time.
1 I see from the papers Will is in Natal. I do wish you could have gone
2with him, but you couldn’t leave the young ones. Tomorrow week will
3be our Dot 21st birth-day! Doesn’t it seem strange to think of our
4little one being so old! We are having a wonderful little cool snap
5here & I am better.
