The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner letter, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. An attached envelope provides the address this letter was sent to and has been opened and stamped by the military censor. The names of the addressees are indicated by salutation. Schreiner was resident in Hanover from September 1900 to October 1907, after 1902 with visits, sometimes fairly lengthy, elsewhere.
1 Dear Friends
3 Thank you for the dates. They are simply lovely; & nothing of the kind
4is to be got here.
6 If you can raise any more clothes like you sent me before they will be
7greatly valued boys or girls of any age, especially big girls things.
8Make them up in a tighter parcel I mean roll them tighter. If you make
9the parcel up so loosely they the paper gets torn, the address was
10nearly off the last.
12 Cron arrived yesterday. He was not looking very fit but a railway
13journey always upsets him.
15 Neta is well, & more like a person than ever.
17 Yours ever & always
18 Olive Schreiner
