Letter from Robert Erskine Childers to Ivor Lloyd-Jones, with provenance letter

A farewell letter written immediately before his death: 'Dearest Ivor, It doesn't matter what you think of me. I know you love me -- the first friendship in my life & indestructable. So in lieu of goodbye & from my heart & soul God bless you & Gwladys & her daughter & give you great happiness. Erskine'.

Accompanied by a letter from Ivor Lloyd-Jones to Norman de Bruyne dated 27 June 1935 donating this letter and [his copy of 'The Riddle of the Sands'] to Trinity College Library, Cambridge.

Letter from Isaac Barrow to the Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge

Pera, Constant[ino]politanae - After an apology for the long delay in writing to the Fellowship, he gives an account of his travels from Paris, with a description of his stay in Florence, prolonged because of the plague in Naples, which was predicted to spread to Rome whither he had planned to go next; heeding the warning that if caught by the plague he would not be able to leave, and it proving too difficult to reach Venice, he embarks on a ship to Constantinople. He describes the present state of affairs under the Grand Vizier, Koprulu Mehmed Pasha, who had come to power two years earlier: his work to restore the Ottoman name at home and abroad, recovering the islands of Tenedos and Lemnos, repelling an attack by the Venetian fleet, suppressing a revolt in Moldavia and Wallachia by removing their princes, repressing the infighting threatening the prestige of the empire, most recently undertaking an expedition to Transylvania on the pretext that Prince Ragotzy, a Turkish subject, had invaded Poland hoping to take the kingdom for himself. Barrow predicts that Christendom will find in the Grand Vizier its worst enemy and describes his punishment of Parthenius, the Patriarch of the Greek Church, who was accused of intrigue with the Duke of Muscovy despite the commonly held view that the accusations were false, and who was hanged and left on display in his Pontifical robes as a deterrent to plotters. Barrow closes with a promise to return to Cambridge within the year.

Printed articles by A. M. Binnie

94 articles on hydrodynamics, most of them offprints, accompanied by a typescript list which has been attached to this catalogue record. Four articles are from the pre-publication stage, but the only one bearing annotations is a corrected copy of an article (item 3, "The flow under gravity of an incompressible and inviscid fluid through a constriction in a horizontal channel" in the Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1937). Another article, an Advance copy, has a photograph of a device for a pipe line laid in loose: item 22, "Protective Air Vessels for Rising Pipe Lines" for The Institution of Mechanical Engineers. One proof is a Confidential report for the Aeronautical Research Committee in 1929 (item 2, "The Influence of Oxygen on Corrosion Fatigue"). Two of the items are represented by the original journal in which they appeared (item 11, Journal of the Institution of Civil Engineers No. 3, 1940-41; and item 17, The Structural Engineer Vol. XX, Number 7, July 1942). One offprint listed on the accompanying typescript list is an article by Binnie, but the item itself is an article from later in the same journal, T. Brooke Benjamin's "Wave formation in laminar flow down an inclined plane" rather than Binnie's "Experiments on the onset of wave formation on a film of water flowing down a vertical plane" in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Vol. 2, Part 6, Aug.1957.
