Journal of a visit to Nigeria (transcript)

Scope and Content

Typescript transcript by Margaret Pilkington of her travel journal of the visit made by her and Dorothy Pilkington to Nigeria, 12 December 1960 to 16 January 1961, with a letter from Margaret Pilkington to F. Ratcliffe, Librarian of the JRULM, 18 April 1974, enclosing the transcript and explaining its contents, and copy reply.

It appears that Margaret Pilkington sent the transcript to Ratcliffe on hearing that he was going to visit Nigeria. The transcript was kept by Ratcliffe and later added to the archive. See a sketchbook of this visit at PIL/1/4/1/3 and also PIL/1/4/4/8 for an additional copy of the transcript.
