Scope and Content

Correspondence written mainly by Leslie Pacey (and later his wife Mildred) principally to his parents. Letters mainly written from the mission field in Yunnan but also include his letters from the College of Chinese Studies in Peiping [Beijing].


Two series of page numbers created by the family for the letters (first red then green). Some gaps in sequence due to misnumbering and a few letters (such as to younger siblings) having been removed.

Earlier letters (page nos 1-69) were not deposited with the Methodist Church.
