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 and biography from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. At this time, a series of articles by Smith titled 'Early History of Veterinary Literature' were being regularly published in 'Journal of Comparative Pathology and Therapeutics'. Particular topics discussed include: the works of Leonard Mascall and Gervase Markham; translations of historical documents; the library at the RCVS, the British Museum and Public Record Office; photographing documents to include in Smith's publications; editing proofs of Smith's articles; the World War [1914-1918], and Bullock's appeal for exemption; and personal matters including the birth of Bullock's son Wilfred and Smith donating books and notes to the RCVS.
