1 De Aar
2 June ?28th 1911
4 Dear Mr Henderson
6 I am sending you my paper. I hope you will be able to read it. If it
7is too late to be of use to you will you do me a great favour & return
8it to me at once. I am too ill to write out again the substance of
9what I have written there & I much need it to send to one of my
10friends who is sitting on the Government Commission, & who wishes to
11know my views on the matter. If you feel it is still in time to be of
12use to you will you return it to me as soon as you can.
14 Yours very sincerely,
15 Olive Schreiner
The 'paper' Schreiner refers to could be her detailed responses on one of the questionaires distributed by the General Missionary Commission in investigating the 'so-called black peril', which her letter to Henderson of 15 July 1912 refers to. See MS 14, 847/4.
