5Dear Mrs Solly
6
7What must you have thought of me for not answering your interesting
8letters with its enclosures. But I’ve not felt able to write to any
9one except my weekly lines to my husband.
10
11Do please come & see me when you are in Town. I find talking so much
12easier than writing.
13
14There are so many things I should like to talk over with you.
15
16I wonder what you think of Smut’s latest move. I am inclined to
17think it will strengthen the Nationalists?
18
19I get very interesting letters from my husband; did you see his
20article on South Africa in the Newstatesman for Oct 30th?
21
22Yours ever sincerely
23Olive Schreiner
