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. He also comments ‘Says she’s coming over “on Tuesday”… Asks me to cover the whole floor of the little “experimental room” with oil cloth (linoleum) which I did.’.
1 …Och, dear, I wish I could be always with you: I’m a poor little
2guard, but I’m something. Oh, I could bear anything but this
5 I am very very well now it’s cold; Wrote at my book till 12 last
The book Schreiner was ‘writing at’ is From Man to Man.
