When Cronwright-Schreiner prepared The Letters of Olive Schreiner, with few exceptions he then destroyed her originals. However, some people gave him copies and kept the originals or demanded the return of these; and when actual Schreiner letters can be compared with his versions, his have omissions, distortions and bowdlerisations. There is a small group of separate typescripts of SCCS-edited letters to W.T. Stead, which appear in The Letters but for which no originals are extant. Schreiner letters to Stead where originals survive will be found in relevant collections; the SCCS extracts are included here for sake of completeness. However, their relationship to the original letters cannot now be gauged, and so they should be read with caution for the reasons given.
2To W. T. Stead.
4To me you will always be a personality of the most absorbing interest,
5never to be forgotten, never to be lost in the mass of my fellows.
