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 …Neta lay on the ground & howled with delight when she saw me & then
2ran round & round till she fell on the ground as if she was mad. The
3dear Le Roux are so kind… It was very sweet of you to go to see
4mother. Miss Molteno & Miss Greene are leaving this week. I shall miss
5them terribly...
