Legend
The Extracts of Letters to Cronwright-Schreiner were produced by Cronwright-Schreiner in preparing The Life and The Letters of Olive Schreiner. They appear on slips of paper in his writing, taken from letters that were then destroyed; many of these extracts have also been edited by him. 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 and where it was sent from onto this extract.

4‘praise’ the world can give. I’ve put it away in , my box with
5my little treasures. I’m so anxious to hear how it went with the
6meetings at Prince Albert & Laingsburg. This will find you on your
7arrival in Cape Town…

9 You must have the perfect rest you mind & body need. You will find the
10parliamentary session hard after the terrible pull of office work…
