Scope and content

St. Keyne's, Cambridge. Dated 30 Sept. 1913 [and] St. Keyne, Grange Road, Cambridge. Dated 8 October, 1913 - Two letters concerning a propoal to speak to [James] Bryce, whose connection to Andrew Carnegie and the Carnegie Institute might result in funding [for a proposed expedition]. In the first letter he proposes to write Bryce; apologises that they cannot accept their invitation for the summer; reports that Lilly has just published another French book for children and is writing another for the Cambridge University Press, while he is working on volume VII of G.B. In the second letter, he has spoken to [W. H. R.] Rivers about the idea of approaching Bryce; Rivers is hopeful that an anthropological branch of the Carnegie Institution will be founded soon, but warns there are those who want to cultivate American archaeology instead.
