Legend
The Project is grateful to the National Library of South Africa (NLSA), Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Special Collections. This letter has been dated by reference to the Kiplings visiting the Merriman farm, because after 1898 Merriman rejected what he perceived as Kipling’s extreme imperialism and was less friendly with him. The beginning of the letter is missing.
