5Dear Mr Unwin,
7Your notes & the press cuttings you continue so kindly to send all
8duly reach us. Mrs Schreiner would have written to you herself, but
9she has really been very unwell, and has had to leave her
10correspondence neglected. I have not even mentioned the later
11development of Smith’s attitude, as she is not well enough. I must
12say, however, that I think that pious attitude so extraordinary as to
13need explanation.
15With kind regards.
16Yours very sincerely,
17S.C. Cronwright Schreiner
The Smith reference is to W.H. Smith, the bookseller, and its concern that Rhodes might bring a libel case regarding the contents of Trooper Peter Halket of Mashonaland.
