Letter from A. M. Adam to Lady Frazer

Letter from St Clair Baddeley to Lady Frazer

Castle Hale, Painswick, Glos. [on mourning stationery] - Is pleased to hear that Sir James' operation was successful; also pleased to hear that she recalls their time in Rome, which they last visited two years before in November, with fewer tourists but more easily recognisable spies; Ponza, Lampedusa and Lipari are full of political victims of Mussolini; Boni faded out before things became so bad, two underground railways are being made in Rome; has told Signorina Tea her words in her letter to Mrs Plimmer, hope to see them soon; they have never wavered in friendship, but felt something of an 'occult misunderstanding' arose long ago.

Letter from James Loeb to Lady Frazer

"Hochried", Murnau/Staffelsee - Is pleased to hear they are comfortable in Paris; has asked Dr Page about Frazer's honorarium for the 'Fasti'; as to Frazer's request for the Loeb Classical Library volumes, they should ask Salomon Reinach to lend them as this would be easiest.

Letter from R. Dussaud to Lady Frazer

3 Rue du Boccador (VIIIe) - Thanks her for telling him about Frazer's award and congratulates them; suggests that giving Reinach a copy of F.L.A.T. ['Folklore dans l'Ancien Testament'] will be more official and will result in a mention in the report of the Académie [des Inscriptions].

Letter from Warren R. Dawson to Lady Frazer

28 Grange Road, Barnes, S.W.13. - Did not know W. J. Perry had delivered a Frazer lecture, has never heard him say a word against Frazer, is sorry the lecture won't be included in the volume [of Frazer Lectures he is editing], will list it in the Introduction; is making Rivet's footnotes uniform, see that Rivet adopted the diffusion theory in his lecture; believes some controversy is good in a book as long as it is not personal as Marett's lecture was [about Elliot Smith]; does not think there is a need for galley proofs but could save money by going straight to page-form.

Letter from W. L. Bragg to Lady Frazer

The Physical Laboratories, The University, Manchester - The Chairman of Council, Arthur Worthington, would like to have them as guests during their visit; will ask the Vice Chancellor about broadcasting and publication; will investigate Sir Robert Mond's claim about the publication of the letters.

Two drafts of a summary of 'Esprits du blé et du bois'

Manuscript draft of a short essay, probably dictated by Frazer, entitled 'The Spirits of the Corn and of the Wild', in English, and a typescript of the same essay in French, corrected in the hand of Lilly Frazer. The essays are possibly for a brochure on Pierre Sayn's French translation. Accompanied by a statement in English and French about the golden bough itself.

Letter from F. G. Kenyon to Lady Frazer

Rose Hill Cottage, Overton Bridge, Wrexham - Is glad she has been able to publish 'Anthologia Anthropologica', which won't need his help; commendation would be an impertinence; thanks her for the gift of 'Greece and Rome'.

Letter from Clemenceau Jacquemarie to Lady Frazer

19 rue Daru, Paris VIIIe - A book of childhood memories of the Vendée currently being published by Tallandier is entitled 'Le pot de basilii' and she wonders if Sir James could cast light on the traditions and folklore surrounding these pots, which she has seen in her country as well as Constantinople and Asia Minor.

Seven letters from 'Jack' [François Ceccaldi] to 'Flaminica' [Lady Frazer]

54 Cours Napoléon, Ajaccio, Corse - In the letter of 15 Feb., he thanks her for the Frazer Bibliography and 'La crainte des morts; is also reading Paul Valéry; in the letter of 18 Mar. he mentions the procession of [Notre Dame de] la Miséricorde going on that day and is happy to hear they are back in Britain, knows things will get better as they adjust to the new ways of doing things; in the letter of 10 Apr., he recounts a visit to the town where his parents lived and has his brother-in-law visiting for a week; later that month he comments that he is ashamed of his work compared to her active life and notes it is a pity that their trip to Glasgow is complicated by [Sir James] Macfarlane's absence; is happy to hear of their return to Cambridge (4 June); later that month he thanks her for her letter full of details of Berne and admires the second volume of ['Worship of the] Dead'.

Letter from Rudyard Kipling to Lady Frazer

Typed letter from Albert C. Kruyt to Lady Frazer

Nymeguen, 85 Waldeck Pyrmontsingel - Re: her wish for Kruyt to arrange some lectures in Holland after May, he has not much influence with scholars in Holland as he was in the Dutch Indies most of his life, but where he has enquired he has been told they cannot arrange lectures so soon; the books are not translated in Dutch, but scholars read them in English, and publishers are afraid a Dutch translation will not sell.
