6Dear Mr Unwin,
7
8With this I return, corrected, the proofs which came this morning.
9
10I notice that the portions of the book you send each day correspond
11with the galleys ^to be corrected^. You will of course see that the
12corrections are made ^in the book^ to correspond with those I make ^on
13the proofs^ each day; and; before you go to press, send me Mrs
14Schreiner the complete set of final revision. This is very important.

16Thanks for the photograph. When you publish it in the book, there must
17simply be the word “Photograph” printed under the photogravure:
18nothing else.

20With kind regards,
21Yours very sincerely,
22S.C. Cronwright Schreiner

28Dear Mr Unwin

30I take it for granted I shall see the have ^copies^ the ^from^ proofs now
31being corrected, sent to me for final revision; as there might be some
32errors.
33
34This of course is absolutely necessary.
