Unsigned Typed Letter, with manuscript corrections, [from the ethnologist Brenda Zara Seligman] to J. H. Driberg, concerning his 'Didinga notes', and with references to 'Sligs' [her husband C. G. Seligman] and 'Edward' [E. E. Evans-Pritchard].

Brenda Zara Seligman (1883–1965) ethnologist and wife of Charles Gabriel Seligman (1873-1940)] [Jack Herbert Driberg (1888-1946); Sir Edward Evan Evans-Pritchard (1902-1973), social anthropologist]
Publication details: 
Place not stated. 16 October 1925.

6pp., 4to. Paginated 1-7, with page 6 missing, and a strip at the bottom of page 5 torn away, resulting in the loss of five lines of text. The letter ends 'Our garden is coming along too slowly. | All best salaams,'. It lacks a signature, but comes from the Driberg papers, and it is presumably Driberg who removed what was probably part of the text which dealt with personal matters.
