Legend
The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date has been written on this letter in an unknown hand. Schreiner was resident in St Mary Abbotts Terrace for some weeks during April and May 1914. The end of the letter is missing, or perhaps by mistake Schreiner has not written its final word.

9Robins house in the country (who is staying in by a three months old
10appointment to meet me) I shall not get back to town till late on
11Monday & will then come on Tuesday. I’ll wire the train.
