Schreiner was resident at two addresses in Bournemouth from mid February to mid March 1886.
1 I have read that paper. I think it splendid. Who is the woman? It’s

The paper Schreiner refers to is perhaps Emma Brooke's February 1886 paper intended for the Men and Women's Club, a response to Pearson's 'The Woman's Question'; this is entitled 'Notes on a man's view of the woman's question' and in the event only Schreiner and Pearson saw her paper.
