1 Dear Mrs Solly
3 Miss ?Met told me she was wiring to you this morning. Under no
4conditions would be possible to get up a large meeting by Thursday If
5I had got up the meeting I should have had it on Saturday, & it would
6have been hard to get a big meeting then I didn’t wire as Miss ?M-
7was wiring so return stamps.
9 I’ll let you know as soon as I hear from Mrs de Witt.
11 Yours ever
12 Olive Schreiner
