TitleCopy letter from Edwin Deller, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society, to Dr [Arthur] Keith
Date26 July 1920
DescriptionThanks Dr [Arthur] Keith for returning the [John] Roscoe documents [from the Mackie anthropological expedition to Uganda]. Notes that Sir James Frazer has only seen copies of two letters, but that he has been told that there are more at the Royal Society if he wants to consult them. Notes that he does not want to risk sending originals, or make copies of so much material. Agrees with Keith that they are 'extraordinary documents'.
