4 Dear Laddie

6 I send you a copy of the English Woman. Read the first article, which
7is good. For myself it is not as a woman I ask anything; it is simply
8as a human creature, holding that the classification of human
9creatures according to the sexual attributes they may happen to to
10possess is false & rotten.

12 Good bye, dear.
13 Thy little sister is no good, but going to pick up at Mrs Murrays.

Notation
The English Woman's Review is the most likely review being referred to; however, an article which fits Schreiner's comments cannot be traced in the 1910 issues, and it ceased pubication after July 1910.
