Reading Frankish Letters

Hello All,

This week I continued working with the Frankish Letters Book verifying the file transcripts and scans. I am currently working on the letters that were written in August 1887.

After reading several of the Frankish letters, I have noticed that Charles Frankish often corresponded with the same people over a long period of time. I have also noticed that he addresses different people with different greetings. For some people he says “My Dear Sir” or just “Dear Sir”. I wonder if he addresses people that he is closer to with “My”. I also noticed that some of the letters he writes go all the way to Kansas, I found it very interesting that he had business with people so far away!

I am looking forward to continuing to read the letters next week.

All the best,
