Scope and content

as at 16 Queen's Gardens, St. Andrews, Fife - Is very happy to hear that Frazer has been given the Freedom of Glasgow; suggests Frazer isn't aware how much her father [George Gilbert Ramsay] admired Frazer's work. A repair to the torn paper has obscured page 2 of the letter, in which she appears to ask if he has written about Woolley's discovery of the Ram in the Thicket at Ur. With a postscript from Moine-na Vey, Ballater, saying Malcolm has read the news accounts with pleasure.
