About this work


** The original item is too fragile to be produced. Please order the microfiche version quoting the reference AMS/MF/166 **

504 pages [ 2 letters on 455 cancelled as too faint]

A number of letters were acknowledged by HSW's secretary whilst HSW was on an extended visit to the USA and Mexico, closely followed by a visit to Europe. A number of the letters received during this period were from America - presumably people whom HSW met on his travels. Many of the replies to meetings were to proffer apologies for HSW's absence. Sudlow was given Power of Attorney in HSW's absence - see 372. The contact address for HSW during his travels was c/o Messr Fairchild Bros. & Foster, New York.

A number of letters re the purchase of furniture are signed by 'C. Irish &Co.' 'Irish' is referred to in other correspondence by HSW [employed as general handyman for the business?].

Please note the Wellcome Research Laboratories (WRL) in Khartoum were later called the Wellcome Tropical Research Laboratories (WTRL).
