6Dear Mr Hodgson
7
8Thank you so much for your letter I got here on Monday. – two days ago.
9 I was very thankful to get out of London. The air here is nice &
10fresh. If I find it suits me I shall stay on there some time, if not I
11must go on to Glasgow which is the only other place where I have
12friends who will look for rooms for me. I should like to be on my
13beloved East Coast where its so dry & stimulating but its impossible
14to go there now with the war.
15
16I hope your play will be a great success.
17
18Give my love & affectionate greetings to Miss Ehrilich & Miss Wickam.
19Its always raining up here among the hills it seems. Do you know this
20part of the world?
21
22All good to you
23Olive Schreiner

25I am staying here with my friends the Parker’s till I can get rooms.
