5 Dear Sir,
7 Might I ask you to do me a great favour. I am expecting two friends
8from Port Elizabeth Miss Molteno & Miss Green ^to come tomorrow^. I am
9not sure which train they are coming by: I think it will be the early train.
10 It is of the very greatest importance that Miss Molteno she should
11get the ^enclosed letter^ at once before she leaves the station. Might I
12ask you to be so good as to give it her; or see that the ticket
13collector does so? She is a lady of about 35 & thin.
15 Yours faithfully
16 Olive Schreiner
