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.
3My Eldest Brother Fred,
5whose little S-chool magazine, the first of these tiny stories, & one
6of the first I ever wrote, was written out many long years ago.
8New College
10Sep 29th 1893.
13My dear Mr Unwin
15I enclose proofs, you Brother suggests I should put in something about
16the school magazine as that would explain how ithe ^little story^ came
17to be given him. Would you please if not quite too much trouble put in
18this dedication. I think it resembles the first I sent which Mr Watt
19said he didn’t get.
21Thanks much for book. A Mrs Unwin who is some connection of yours is
22coming to see me today
24Yours sincerely
25Olive Schreiner
27New College
30I should be very much obliged if you would put in this dedication in
31stead of the other, but of course if they are all printed you can’t.
Filed with this Dedication to Dream Life and Real Life and Schreiner’s letter to Fisher Unwin is an associated letter, also to Unwin, by Fred Schreiner, as follows:

‘New College,
Oct 29 / 93

Dear Mr Unwin,

I don’t really know what portrait of my sister appears in “Dreams”, for I have given away all the copies ^of the book^ bought.

I shall be pleased to submit to you copies of recent photos, but have not one by me at present. She had some taken by Elliott & Fry before sailing.

Yours very truly,
Fred Schreiner’.
