9Dear Mrs Murray
11How delighted I was to hear from your brother you had come with May.
13Do come & see me when you are free. I am generally ill by 4.30. Or I
14could come & see you if you would rather?
16Only I know how busy one is just when one first gets to London & I may
17come just when you are engaged.
19It was a great pleasure to meet your brother Ted. I have a curious
20liking to all the Molteno’s I have seen. Sort of feeling as though
21we were mentally related. I often think of Barkley & hope he is all
24You will find my telephone no at the top of this sheet if you want to
25phone any time.
27My heart is so glad over dear May. I shall like to know her plans.
29With much love, dear Mrs Murray,
30Yours ever
31Olive Schreiner
