Cards and jottings from Norman and Yvonne Nicholson

Scope and Content

Bundle of largely undated Christmas cards and gift tags sent to Doreen Cornthwaite by NCN or jointly by NCN and Yvonne Nicholson over the years. Most significant, and poignant, are 5 slips of paper (DCN/2/20-24) bearing brief (and largely illegible) notes and jottings in marker pen, made by NCN during his final illness. Doreen Cornthwaite has added a note indicating that he wrote these on 25 May 1987, five days before his death.
