1 Kensington Palace Mansions & Hotel,
2 De Vere Gardens,
3 W.
5 Dear Mrs Solomon
7 Daisy mustnt trouble to come & fetch me. I can come by bus, & will
8easily find your house as I know where the road is, & please don't
9trouble to look for rooms. I only thought that living there you might
10know of airy high rooms in that part.
12 It shall so like to see your son's picture & you & Daisy too.
14 As to the war, I feel it is more wrong, much than the Boer war - that
15England's league with Russia, has been the greatest crime in our
16history. So we'd better not talk about the war, dear Mrs Solomon. I
17think when two people have so many things in common as you & I have,
18we need never refer to the things about which we don't agree. Don't
19you think so? We can't all think alike can we?
21 Yours affecty
22 Olive Schreiner
