DescriptionLetters between Frederick Smith and Fred Bullock, Secretary of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons [RCVS]. The main subject of discussion is research carried out by Smith, with Bullock's assistance, regarding manuscript and literary sources of veterinary history from the sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This is presumably leading towards Smith's publication of 'Early History of Veterinary Literature' in 1913. Particular topics of interest are: veterinary history sources located at the Public Record Office, British Museum [now held at the British Library] and Somerset House [where records of births, marriages and deaths were previously kept]; legislation relating to horses; biographical information relating to historical individuals.
