Reading Experience:

'Dear Dr. Prothero, Are you reading Curtin's articles in the Times? I have followed every one of them very carefully, and I must admit I started reading them with some anxiety. Then I read about his letter of introduction to Mr. Drechsler, given to him by Prof. Muensterberg [...] I have read every one of his articles so far and I can now honestly assure you that all of my anxiety about seeing perhaps a great deal of similar material, as that which forms the MSS of my book, has entirely evaporated.'

Additional comments:

This letter is in a folder in the John Murray Archive, of correspondents with Prothero with surnames DEB to GWY. All letters are loose. The NLS was, at the time of writing, in the process of recataloguing the John Murray Archive. All MS call numbers should therefore be checked at source.
