About this work

Description

The bulk of these papers consists of HSW's correspondence to and from family members, including his parents and brother, and as such gives a valuable insight into his early career in America and the establishment of BW & Co in London. The papers include some other materials of family provenance, such as HSW's parents' marriage certificate and a lock of his mother's hair. File FP/A.2 contains a family tree, which can be used to identify the correspondents in this series. See WA/HSW/PH for family photographs and WA/HSW/OB for family relics and objects
