6 Dear Mrs Solly
7
8 Thanks so much for your letter. Things are indeed is a dark way here.
9I wish much I had never come out, but now I am here I must stay. If
10one could do anything to help, it would be different. This shooting
11down & imprisoning the natives if they dare to talk of striking is
12really worse than anything in England.
13
14 If I am well enough I am coming to the concert on Thursday evening, &
15could meet you at the Ladies Club before hand & have supper with you,
16if you could tell me what time.
17
18 If you ever came to see me this place is quite easy to find, it is
19just at the Tramway Terminus. The first house on the right hand side
20after you get out.
21
22 We shall have much to talk over
23
24 Yours ever
25 Olive Schreiner
