1 De Aar
2 Oct Nov 5th 1907
4 Dear Mrs Solly
6 I enclose you a note from Mrs Pethick Lawrence which may interest you,
7please return it.
9 I hope all goes well with our little womans League. I am quite sure
10that as time passes all the feeling against Mrs Macfadyen as President
11will pass. It is just the South African feeling against anything not
12South African & above all anything new! The great advantage is that
13this last objective soon passes, & anything new so soon becomes "old",
14& then of course it is accepted.
16 I am living at de Aar now. We have a little room built out in the veld
17as far as they will allow us to build from the Camp & am very happy
18here with my dear husband in spite of the terrible dust & wind & heat.
19Anything is better than being separated from him. I hope all goes well
20with you.
22 Olive Schreiner
