Brookside, Bolton Avenue, Windsor
15. June '43.

Dear Sir,

In going through the books of my late Father's library recently {1} and coming across the enclosed, I thought some parts of this collection might be of interest to you. Should this be so, would you please keep the whole, taking from it any parts of special interest.

This collection was made by my Grandfather, who I believe was a Clerk in the College Kitchens in about the '60's or '70's of the last century. He lived all his working life in Cambridge, hence his local as well as College interest.

The signatures "Waldegrave" and "A. P. Humphrey" would have reference to Birley shooting; as the "author" was a member of the first English VIII to compete in an international; in Belgium. Other signatures will mostly be familiar to you.

Yours faithfully,
H. F. F. Coggin.

The Librarian, Trinity Coll., Cambridge.


{1} The writer's father was the Rev. Henry Thomas John Coggin (1851-1942).
