This letter is a photocopy; the original cannot be traced. It has been dated approximately by reference to when Schreiner was living in Hanover. Schreiner was resident in Hanover from September 1900 to October 1907, after 1902 with visits, sometimes fairly lengthy, elsewhere.

6 Please let me have my account. I must take this opportunity of
7thanking you again for your very great kindness & attention to me when
8I was ill. I do not think I would have been alive if it had not been
9for you.

11 I am always meaning to come over & see Mrs Wilson, but am always
12afraid of meeting other visitors who may not be very anxious to see me!

14 I'm so glad your boy is doing so splendidly.
