5 Dear Jan
7 I send you a cutting in case you don’t see the New Statesman. I’ve
8written to Isie & told her you were looking much better than when I
9first saw you, & how good you were, to take me to Cambridge to see
10Miss Greene. Of course I don’t mention politics to her where you are
11concerned. I know in her darling heart you reign as a kind of God, &
12all you do is perfect! It’s sweet it should be so.
14 I did enjoy the trip to Cambridge so much.
16 Yours ever
17 Olive Schreiner
