Letters to C.F. Sixsmith from other correspondents

Scope and Content

This small class contains letters to Sixsmith from various correspondents, all of which relate to Carpenter in some way. The material includes: letters referring to Carpenter's seventieth and eightieth birthdays (on both occasions he received congratulatory addresses signed by eminent figures, including the Labour Cabinet in 1924); telegrams informing Sixsmith of Carpenter's last illness and death; and 2 copies (in 1171/2/4 and 5) of a speech written by Carpenter in 1910 for delivery at his funeral which was not discovered until after the funeral had taken place.
