4 Dear Mrs Murray
6 Thank you so much for your letter. Port Lock is my dream land to which
7I hope to get some day! Just now the heat has made me very unfit & I'm
8going to Cape Town again a little to see the Doctor. When I'm quite
9fit you may be sure I'll start off at once!!! to the large table & the
10big room & all the good friends.
12 I am sending you Mrs Murray's letter. Please return it to me as soon
13as possible. You may copy extracts from it if you like. Address to
14Matjesfontein as they will send my letters on wherever I am.
16 When I am coming, if ever my good dream comes true I shall wire as you
17ask me two days before hand to Mrs Watermeyer.
19 I've so much I'd like to write about but the heat is too great.
21 Yours ever
22 Olive Schreiner
