Scope and Content

A letter to 'Major ffoulkes' from N.F.C. Marshall, Seecretary of the Royal Literary Fund, dated 13 February 1936, enclosing a note 'found among some papers of Thomas Newton's'. The note signed T.N. outlines the provenance of the daggers from a Miss Bowyer, but has gaps for names presumably intended to be filled in later after checking, Also included are two vellum labels once attached to the daggers, which were, according to T.N.'s note, copied from the original labels attached to the daggers when he received them.
