1 9 Blandford Sq
2 Sunday.
4 Dear Mr Pearson
6 Thursday or Wednesday will suit me, & the evening as well as the
7aftenoon. I am my own mistress now. I have a quiet room here in which
8we could meet, but perhaps the Temple would be more central for us all.
9 Miss Sharp must decide, but please let me know at once, on account of
10other engagements. I have thought of one great deficiency in your
11paper, but perhaps it was intentional. As far as it went it I was very
12complete, but it left out one whole field, to me, ^personally^ the most
13important one,
15 I hope you will have your paper printed.
17 Yours sincerely,
18 Olive Schreiner
20 The long climb would be no draw back.
The paper referred to is Pearson's 'The Woman's Question', read at the first meeting of the Men and Women's Club in July 1885. Rive's (1987) version omits part of the letter and is also in a number of respects incorrect.
