6 My dear Mr Pearson
8 Miss Müller (to whom I sent your paper) is very anxious to meet you.
9She has written to ask me to ask you if you will go up the river on
10Sunday. She has a boat, & goes every Sunday. Generally starts about
11half past 11. I am sure you will like her. I shall go too if I am able.
12 There seems to have been some mistake, no one wrote to ask her to
13write a paper for December. I understand at that meeting that you were
14going to, so did not write myself.
16 She is very busy working at it ^the paper^ now. Who is to read the
17November Paper? I should think Mr Parker’s Historical Paper would
18come well then. It would be beginning at the beginning. My paper
19isn’t written yet, but it’s going to be soon.
21 I shall call it "False Classification". I envy you your long quiet
22rest out of the world.
24 Yours very sincerely
25 Olive Schreiner
27 If you can’t go on Sunday – but I hope you will be able to –
28perhaps you would call on her some day, her address is 33 Brompton Sq
