1New College Junior School,
6Dear Mr Unwin,
8Your note to Mrs Schreiner arrived this morning. No proofs have
9arrived yet (noon), but, as yesterday’s carried the story almost to
10a close, I expect you you are waiting a day over to send the whole
11corrected story for final revision. There shall be no delay in
12correcting & returning the whole. Mrs Schreiner would be glad if, at
13the same time, you would kindly send a copy of the photograph as it
14will appear in the book.
16Yours very sincerely,
17S.C. Cronwright Schreiner
The proofs referred to are those of Trooper Peter Halket of Mashonaland.
