TitleLetter from [a patient], 24 Argyle Street, Londonderry, to Henry Barcroft
Date7 December 1946
DescriptionLetter from a former patient and research subject of Barcroft's. Asks him for a letter of character to show to his medical referee in order to claim compensation. Makes reference to his role in Barcroft's research: 'I told several doctors that you took my blood out until I went unconscious and I don't think they believed me'. Accompanying draft letter from Barcroft says he is unable to do this as the decision for compensation must be made on purely medical grounds.
