4My dear Mr Unwin
6I believe this is your wedding-day.
8I wish you every joy. My congratulations are not a matter of form.
9Because though I know little of your wife personally, I know much of
10her through others, & feel sure that life is promising you much.
12With best wishes for your happiness & mental growth, (which an ideal
13marriage always aids), I am yours sincerely
14Olive Schreiner
17I see Norman is married too! I shall be the only one of my day - &
18generation who remains single! My friend Ellis is married also to a
19most ideal woman.
