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 and that Betty Molteno and Alice Greene were also at Uitkyk.
1 …Mrs Le Roux is very anxious you should come up here. I suppose you
2wouldn’t care to come up from Friday to Monday. If you left Friday
3night you would be here ^on Saturday^ about 2 o’clock… If you could
4bring up Fletcher Vare with you, they would make him a nice bed in the
5sitting room…
