Legend
The Project is grateful to the National English Literary Museum (NELM) for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Manuscript Collections. The addressee and the address this postcard was sent to are on its front. The postmark is not fully legible but the address is Llanrindodd Wells, Wales. Schreiner first stayed in Llandrindodd Wells from late July to late October 1915, and then again from mid June to mid September 1916. The postcard has a colour picture of a lake and hills with the caption: ‘View at Pen-Y-Gareg. Reservoir hayader’.
