Legend
The Project is grateful to University College London (UCL) and its Library Services for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Special Collections. The date has been derived from the postmark on this postcard, while the name of the addressee and the address it was sent to are on its front. Schreiner was resident in Blandford Square from the end of November to mid January 1886, when she left London for the Isle of Wight.
1 Thursday at 5 will suit me. If I should not come don’t wait.

3 Thank you for the lecture. I sympathize more with the underlying idea
4expressed in it than with anything I have yet seen of yours. I think
5your words completely veil your meaning from those who have not
6already the idea. Some who were there completely misunderstood you.

A Discourse delivered at South Place Chapel, Finsbury, E.C. on Sunday 29 November 1885', later published in his The Ethic of Freethought: A Selection of Essays and Lectures London: T. Fisher Unwin.
