1 Dear Mrs Murray
3 I have spoken to Mary Sauer & other women, & they all think it is so
4splendid that you should be President. Do join, so that when we have
5the election next April you may be President, or vice President if Mrs
is chosen. She is also a valuable fore-woman.
8It was such a pleasure to see you brother Charley’s sweet wife
11 Yours ever
12 Olive Schreiner
