The Project is grateful to Mrs Hazel MacFarlane for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter to Bob Muirhead, which is part of the MacFarlane family collection of Muirhead Papers, Special Collections, University of Glasgow Library. Schreiner stayed at New College in May and then in July 1893, on the latter occasion leaving for Mrs Walter's home in Ilkley and then went to Millthorpe in August, thus the dating of this. The letter is written on printed headed notepaper.
1New College,
5My dear Bob
7I am going up to Ilkley on Monday. I leave by the 12.25 from St
8Pancras. When are you going to Ed Carpenters I’m sure I shall have
9Hayfever there ^at EC’s^, & so not be able to stay long, but I want so
10to spend a day there, & be near you both. Please write addressed to
11c/o Mrs Walters Highfield, Ilkley; & ask Edward to write & let me know
12whether he will be at home. I fear he will just be going down to
13London now, & I shall not see him at all. I too am thinking of perhaps
14taking a very important step: but as always in such cases there are
15not only two persons to be thought of but more.
17All good be with you my own dear beautiful brother. Your little
18sister Olive
20Send this on to E-C- & ask him to let me know of his movements.
22^Have you yet got work??^
