Mclachlan, E.
Letter 10th February 1905

This letter was found in the “Dictionary of the Efik Language” donated by Charles Partridge in memory of Mary Slessor. It is therefore assumed that originally it had been sent to Charles Partridge at the time he was beginning to study the Efik language. it is included here as part of the history of the small book collection which he donated.
