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. In letters dated December 1896, Schreiner refers to the bicycle given to her by a friend of Cronwright and her learning to ride it, thus the dating of this part-letter. Schreiner was resident at The Homestead, Kimberley, from mid 1894 to late 1898. The name of the addressee is indicated by content. The start and end of the letter are missing.
