They are artefacts of his editorial practices and their relationship to original Schreiner letters cannot now be gauged. They should be read with considerable caution for the reasons given. Cronwright-Schreiner has written the date, where it was sent from and the place it was sent to onto this extract, and also that Mrs Pullinger was their neighbour in Johannesburg and Robert was Olive Schreiner’s brother-in-law Robert Hemming.
