The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner lettercard, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The address which this letter-card was sent to is written on its front. Schreiner was resident at Porchester Place from early April 1917 until August 1920, when she left Britain for South Africa.
1Dear Lucy, It’s half past eleven o’clock. Betty who has just returned
2from spending ten days at Parklands is sitting by the fire reading a
3book, I think her change there has done her much good.
5I had a long letter from my dear May Parker this morning. Mrs Percy
6Molteno is staying with her. I hope May will come to town in the
7spring. I long to see both her & Freddy so. You get very fond of him
8when you get to know him, & they are so happy together.
10Good night my dear beautiful friend. I wish there were any hope of
11your coming here.
