8Dear Mrs Marscheles
10I have just seen the notice in the paper of your husbands death – a
11beautiful existence, spent in producing beauty, ended. I always see
12the beautiful look in his clear eyes as he sat under the trees in your
13garden the last time but one I saw him; they were as clear as a childs.
15When you come back please let me know when I can come & see you.
17With deep love & sympathy
18Yours ever
19Olive Schreiner
