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 year has been written on this letter in an unknown hand. Schreiner was resident in De Aar from November 1907 until she left South Africa for Britain and Europe in December 1913, but with some fairly lengthy visits elsewhere over this time.

12 I hope you understood what I meant about the W.C.T.U. I think it a
13fine & most useful organisation; though I could not join it; & Miss
14Willard
was a great friend of mine, from whom I possess many beautiful
15letters though I never met her in the beay body. I am looking forward
16to seeing you in Cape Town.
