Harry Gie

Harry Gie was a friend of Olive Schreiner’s and a family connection of her sister-in-law Fan Schreiner’s. No other information has been found about him. Just three letters from Schreiner to him are extant, one of which is a ‘fun letter’ in the form of what Schreiner terms a new telegraphic form of letter writing. Overall there is little sense of the relationship here beyond friendliness, chumminess and humour.
