Notes, topics or text 

Weatherston was in Britain on behalf of McMaster's purchasing of the Russell Archives. He took William Ready's place in visiting BR when Ready's mother died. Weatherston was part of the Hamilton, Ont. law firm of Griffin, Weatherston, Bolby, Luchak and Martino.

Weatherston recounts his visit to BR and Edith Russell at Plas Penrhyn in early 1968. "He told us of a book he was writing, drawing attention to absurdities in the Bible." Weatherston writes that "after a few brief enquiries as to McMaster University, he tended to talk about himself, his family and his ideas through out our entire conversation." He later writes: "Lord and Lady Russell seemed generally interested in McMaster University...." There is much else from BR's conversation.

The original of this letter has not survived in William Ready's papers, which are held elsewhere in Research Collections.
