The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date of this postcard is provided by the postmark, although this is not fully legible, and the address it was sent to and the addressee are on the front. Schreiner was resident in Hanover from September 1900 to October 1907, after 1902 with visits, sometimes fairly lengthy, elsewhere. In later October 1907, she moved to De Aar.
1 Dear,
3 Have you still got your old copy of Mrs Segurneys (I don’t know how
4her name is spelt) poems? If you have could you lend it me. I
5specially want it. I’ve been trying for years to buy a copy, but
6can’t. How is Miss Molteno? I wish I could see you
8 Olive
