The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner lettercard, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date has been derived from the postmark on this letter-card, while the address it was sent to is written on its front. Schreiner was resident at Porchester Place from early April 1917 until August 1920, when she left Britain for South Africa.
1Dear Mrs Solomon
3I was so sorry I had to jump into the bus so quickly I couldn’t say
4a real good-bye to you. I did so enjoy my visit. I only hope I
5didn’t quite eat up all the rations for the week!!! Give my love to
6Daisy. She always reminds me of a real daisy which is one of my most
7favourite flowers. What a charming girl her friend is. I am so glad
8you have their bright presences. I’ll ask Mr Hodgson if he heard
9from you.
11Yours with warm love
12Olive Schreiner
