Adele Chapin

Adele Chapin was the wife of the US Consul at Johannesburg, Robert Chapin, in the period leading up to the 1899-1902 South African War. She was a close friend of both Joseph Chamberlain and Alfred Milner, and an amateur spy for the British. Schreiner arranged meetings between Adele Chapin and Jan Smuts, and also urged her brother Will to make contact with her.
