2Thursday morning
4Dear Miss Priestly
6I am so sorry I was out when you called this morning. I was at
7Carloni’s where I have to be every day from 9.30 to 12 o’clock. If you
8could call for me at Carloni’s at 11.30 tomorrow I would arrange to
9leave 12 half an hour sooner. Carloni’s address is 39 Via Cavour. It
10is so kind of you to ask me. Thank you for the lovely flowers, they
11give one a real spring feeling.
13Yours sincerely
14Olive Schreiner
