The Project is grateful to the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the University of Texas at Austin, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. This scrap of a letter has been torn away from the rest and cannot be matched with any surviving letter or part-letter. It is written on paper of a kind Schreiner used in the mid and late 1880s and thus its dating.
