5 Dear Mrs Murray
7 I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been unwell. I would have been to see
8you but I’ve been ill myself. I do hope you are feeling better.
10 Yours with much love
11 Olive Schreiner
13 I hope dear friend, that you don’t think that my holding a different
14view of the Transvaal Franchise from yours makes any difference in my
15affection to you. Views don’t make any difference between friends
16when one knows they are sincerely held, as yours always are.
