6 Dear Mrs Solly
8 I did not get your letter sent to the Royal, but have just got your
9other note. If I am well enough I will try to come to the Alexandra
10Club. I want much to see you & my husband will come too as he much
11wants to see you.
13 If I possibly can I will go to the meeting in the afternoon. I can’t
14get one of the women I know to join the little society. They all look
15on it as a branch of the Loyal Ladie’s League – I suppose because
16two out of the three officials belong to it!
18 We can talk over this when we meet.
20 Yours ever
21 Olive Schreiner
