The Project is grateful to the National English Literary Museum (NELM) for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner lettercard, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. Schreiner has misdated this letter-card as 22 December 1913 (the day before she landed in Britain from South Africa), when it should be 22 January 1914. The hotel’s name and address are printed on the back of the card, with the address it was sent to on its front.
