1 Dear Mrs Murray
3 There are two books I am sure you will be much interested to read if
4you have not done so already - a little book costing 1/3 called
5"Woman's Suffrage" by Arnold Harris Matthew & "The Convert" by
6Elizabeth Robins ^costing 6/-^. I think one can get both at the book
9 You cannot know how your deep earnestness in this matter has cheered &
10touched my heart. I am sure you will do much good work for women in
11the years that are coming.
13 Yours very sincerely
14 Olive Schreiner
A book or pamphlet on women's suffrage by Arnold Harris Matthew cannot be traced. The other book referred to is: Elizabeth Robins (1907) The Convert London: Methuen.
