1 Eastbergholt
3 Dear Mrs Solly
5 We had a most interesting little private meeting at Mrs Murrays
6yesterday with Mrs Brown to open the discussion.
8 Lady de Villiers & Mrs ^du Vaal^ many others not quite in sympathy yet
9were there & I think the meeting had a most good effect.
11 I have seen Mrs de Witt she says her drawing room is not quite big
12enough, but she will try to get another larger & will let me know at
13once, when I will write to you
15 I am so busy & have so many engagements I have hardly breathing space.
17 Yours ever
18 Olive Schreiner
