Dear Mat,
I was ever so glad to get your letter & the photo. I haven‘t got a photo I can send you here but I‘ll send you one ―when the War is over‖ & I can go any where & post anything… I have hired an empty room in a house here, & put in a stretcher & a table, & do my cooking on a spirit lamp, & I & my little dog Neta live together… One just waits week after week… Drop me a line soon. I hope Mr Censor will letter [sic] this letter through.
Good bye,
Olive Schreiner
(OS to Alf Mattison, Cory MS16 098 / 3)
The above letter was written in February 1901, in a small village under martial law in an up-country area of the Northern Cape area of South Africa, by Olive Schreiner
