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.
1 …Oh my love, my darling. I love you so. You will always know that I
2have loved you like nothing else on earth - that I wanted to make life
3so beautiful to you when I came to you. I’ve never really wanted
4anything else in the world since I knew you. Goodbye, dear one, my own
5man, the self that is more to me than myself…
