TitleLetter from Francis Albert Eley Crew, Upton's Mill, Framfield, Sussex, to Reginald Crundall Punnett
Date27 January n.y. [c. 1965?]
Description'Dear Punnett

Thank you. They were great days when men felt deeply about hypotheses and theories and were ardent in their defence. I first read J. Arthur Thomson's Heredity in a deep German-built dugout in France in 1917, my studies being frequently interrupted and my attention inclined to wander.

Yours sincerely...'
