Letter from Sir Samuel Baker, 1866-04-21

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/RCMS 113/8
Scope and Contents A letter to an unnamed correspondent concerning adding 'Victoria Nile or' before 'Somerset River' on a map shortly to be published, presumably in Baker's 'The Albert N'Yanza', originally published in 1864. The map in the original volume is marked 'R Somerset or Victoria Nile'. The recipient may have been Stephen William Silver (1819-1905), a friend of Baker's, to whom other letters given by Sir Harry Wilson to the R.C.S. in 1916 were addressed.
