Digital copy of the manuscript letter sent from Arthur "Oc" Asquith to his sister, Violet Asquith, giving an account of Rupert Brooke's last days.
Hassall died intestate. His working papers were taken to the Royal Society of Literature by his assistant Gillian Paterson, who arranged and (presumably) listed them. They were bought by CUL from Bloomsbury Book Auctions in 1992. They were housed in paper box files 1 25 and cartons A D, as listed. They have now been re boxed, in 28 boxes and one packet, which has involved some reorganisation of the material and hence some rearrangement and re numbering of the original list.

Sir Edward Howard Marsh (1872-1953), patron of the arts and for many years private secretary to Sir Winston Churchill, was a close friend of Rupert Brooke, and wrote the Memoir introducing Brooke's Collected Poems in 1918. Frances Cornford's letters provided him with much information about Brooke and his circle of friends.
All the letters from Brooke to Dent are copies, the originals having been 'given to E[ddie] Marsh'.
Charles Edward Sayle (1864-1924), fifth son of the Cambridge draper Robert Sayle, was educated at Rugby and New College, Oxford. He joined the staff of Cambridge University Library in 1893, and was Assistant Librarian from 1910 until his death. These letters are mostly short communications, written on postcards, but including Brooke's views on various subjects, literary and otherwise.
Brooke and Fry met as undergraduates at King's (Fry having come up in 1905, a year before Brooke), and continued their friendship after Fry left Cambridge in 1908.
