14I may mention that though I wrote long ago stating I had received the
15accounts I have not yet received the royalty for Dreams & Dream Life &
16Real Life, up to the March of 1910. In the past you have always sent
17the cheque with the accounts.
Notation
While many of Schreiner's letters to Unwin deal with problems and issues, particularly with regard to contracts and payments, it is also clear that Unwin assiduously promoted publicity about and sales of her publications. This included through sending copies to well-placed people, including Constance Lytton, to whom Schreiner had dedicated Woman & Labour. Lytton's response was sent not long before Schreiner's to Unwin:

Homewood,
Knebworth,
Herts.

Rail. Knebworth. G.N.R.
Telegrams, Knebworth.

Ap. 20. 1911.
