Legend
The Project is grateful to Ronald Levine for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of the Ronald Levine Collection. The addressee of this letter cannot be identified, although it may have been T. Fisher Unwin. Schreiner stayed several times in Russell Road with her friend Alice Corthorn when visiting England. It is unclear when precisely this letter was written but it is likely to have been during January and February 1897 while Schreiner was in London organising the publication of Trooper Peter Halket of Mashonaland. The letter is written on printed headed notepaper.
119, Russell Road,
