5 Dear Sir
6
7 I find the letter I kept at de Aar to be posted to you was never sent.
8I wrote at once before leaving de Aar to tell you how much I regretted
9that my health would not allow of my travelling about the country in
10the summer, but that anything I could do from Cape Town (where I shall
11be for the next three months) I should be most glad to do.
12
13 The subject of the so called Black-Peril is one that interests me
14deeply. My feeling of course is that peril which has long over
15shadowed this country, is one which exists for all dark skinned women
16at the hands of white men.
17
18 If I can do anything in Cape Town to assist in any way I shall be glad.

20 Yours sincerely
21 Olive Schreiner
