Reel 1 Includes one sepia photograph with no identifying text, showing three Europeans in white (one of them Woodford?), a line of standing Solomon Islanders in uniform (? police?) and other Solomon Islanders, men and women, seated. Among the letters is correspondence between W. and Charmian Kittredge London (the wife of the American writer Jack London): (a) letter from “Mrs. Jack’, Glen Ellen, Sonoma Co., California, to ‘Mr. Woodford’, dated 25 Feb 1912; (b) letter from Charmian Kittredge London, aboard American ship “Dirigo”, South Atlantic, to ‘My dear Mr. Woodford’, dated 7 Apr 1912; (c) letter from W to ‘Mrs. Jack’ ‘ dated 21 Sep 1912, replying to Charmian’s letter of 7 Apr; (d) typescript letter from Charmian Kittredge London to ‘My dear Mr. Woodford’ dated 11 Jan 1913, inter alia expressing hope that W and family would one day visit the Londons at their new house; ‘Can’t you SOME DAY come to the States and visit us?’. With the letter is a sepia photograph of Charmian and Jack on their yawl Roamer, and a clipping with a poem in rhyming couplets headed ‘Plural and singular’.[see also Jack London, ‘Beche de mer English’ Contemporary Review, Sep 1909, p.359-64, PMB1290 Bundle 15, 7/35]
