The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date has been written on this short fragment in an unknown hand as 7 April 1916; however, Haldane Murray was killed in September 1916 and thus how the letter has been dated. The name of the addressee is not provided and remains unknown.
