4 Dear old Fan
6 So glad of your news & to hear all is still going well with you. I am
7so sorry to hear about your poor old Harry. Tell him I send him my
8love & hope he will soon be quite strong. I wish I could be at home to
9see the rejoicings when your two come back. We are expecting dear old
10Dr Brown tomorrow. He will come in the morning & go away in the
11evening again! The Purcells are now at Natal. Little Walter was laid
12up for ten days at Johannesburg with influenza, & she dislikes
13Johannesburg as much as I do.
15 Good bye dear
16 Olive
18 Cron will be coming to Cape Town again on the 18th of next month for
19ten days. It will be his third visit to Cape Town since parliament.
20But I
22^have no money to come. ^
24 I am working hard at my book to try & earn some, but those publishers
25are so bad I may get nothing after all.
27 Olive
The book Schreiner was working on is likely to be From Man to Man.
