Correspondence to John Hodgkin, 1838

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.9738/94-96
Scope and Contents From the Fonds:

The letters catalogued are an autograph collection, gathered (at least in part) by Sir Edward Frys daughter Agnes. Although individually many of them are of limited historical value, being notes of thanks to Fry and his family for congratulations or donations, and social invitations and replies, the letters as a group do throw some light on Frys career: his relations with other judges, his work as an arbitrator, and his zoological interests.

Dates: 1838
Conditions Governing Access: From the Fonds: Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library.
