6My dear Friend
8I have got your note. I have not published many things besides those
9you mention. There is an allegory in the Fortnightly for August 1887,
10I think that is right. I am sure as to the year but not the month, &
11some other short things I have published in different papers. But they
12have all been collected into a volume & will soon be published.
14I am so grateful that anything I have written should in anyway have
17Yours very sincerely
18Olive Schreiner
20If you will write to my friend
21Miss Alice Corthorn
2269 Chancery Lane
24She will tell you when & where the little volume is to be published. I
25do not myself know as I have left the M.S. in the hands of friends.
The allegory referred to in this letter is: ‘Three dreams in a desert’ Fortnightly Review August 1887, vol 42, pp.198-203. The ‘little volume’ referred to is Dreams.
