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 he had found that his clerk Pepler was ‘a thief & a safe-breaker!!’.
1 …I do hope you will find all well with your business in Hanover. You
2could not stand much more worry, so now I am as you have been. It is a
3terrible strain to have it on your shoulders as well as the
4parliamentary work. It’s no wonder you feel broken & tired. I wish I
5could rest you my darling...
