The Project is grateful to the British Library for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Special Collections. Schreiner stayed in Morley's Hotel for a few days at the start of July 1897.
1 Morley's Hotel
2 Early Sunday morning
4 Dear Mr Dirks
6 I have your letter & shall be very glad to see you on Tuesday morning
7at 11.30. I only hope you are not coming down on purpose to see about
8the book as it might not be worth your while I only thought if you
9were in town I should like to see you about it.
11 Yours sincerely
12 Olive Schreiner
'The book' which is referred to could be one of a number of possibilities, including 'New Rush', From Man to Man and Schreiner's projected May Wollstonecraft 'Introduction'.
