3Thank you so much for your letter. I am getting worse & shall move to
4Beaufort West or Victoria early next week if I can hear of a place,
5but still write here & it will be sent on.
7Many of the things told me about Spreckley are worked into the little
8captain who shoots Peter Halket: & now he is gone too. Life is very
9short, & there are many things harder than death But I would like to
10copy our & revise my big novel
14Sauer seems making a splendid stand.
The 'big novel' Schreiner refers to is From Man to Man.
