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, where it was sent from and the place it was sent to onto this extract. He also comments ‘I drove Olive into Kimberley on 30th Sept. 1898, in a terrible dust ^(sand)^ storm; she took train that evening for Johannesburg – On the 1st October she posted a letter to me at Kroonstad, O. F. S.’.
