'To mark the centenary of the publication of The Story of An African Farm and to pay tribute to its author, The Institute for the Study of English in Africa decided a few months ago to make available to students of South African Literature two little-known pieces of writing by her husband, Samuel Cronwright-Schreiner: “The Nienaber Affair”, an interesting excision from his The Life of Olive Schreiner, and The Interment at Buffels Kop, which seems to be a preliminary draft of an illustrated memorial publication which never came out.' From the Preface.
