11Dear Dr Jacobs. Oh what a joy it would be to see you here! But I hope
12I shall be in England the first week in May. I have been getting worse
13since I came here: the treatment does no good.
15How much we should have to speak of if we met. I shall be in England
16for a short time in spring & then go to Nauheim with my brother. I
17would like greatly to come & see you in Holland, if I could manage it.
19I’ll write a real letter soon when I’m better
21My love to you
22Olive Schreiner
