Scope and Content

Letter from John Romilly Allen, editor of The Reliquary and Illustrated Archaeology Journal. Addressed to "Mr Doubleday" [probably Herbert Arthur Doubleday]. The letter discusses a stone slab in Manchester cathedral, which the author argues to be of Saxon rather than Norman origin, noting that it includes an angel holding a scroll inscribed with Anglo-Saxon letters. Tait is mentioned in relation with publishing new work on this topic.
