1 Dear Mrs Solomon,
3 I shall be so glad to see Daisy. Perhaps Miss Molteno & I will be able
4to come in & see you some evening. We often ride up to Golders Green
5after supper for the air.
7 Please tell the friend who wrote that I never speak in public. I hope
8their society will have good success. I saw young Ramsbottom at my
9brother’s today. He’s a nice looking boy.
11 Much love to you both
12 Olive Schreiner
