BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
This is an extract in Lucy Silcox's hand from Lionel William Lyde, The Continent of Europe (London: Macmillan, 1913). It concerns railway sidelines in Belgium that provide for the movement of troop trains. It is not cited in Russell's writings during WWI.
The extract was originally catalogued in BRACERS as the missing enclosure for a 1912 letter from Silcox, record 80369. A clue to dating its place in Russell's correspondence is that the Russell Letter No. on the extract is 742. The documents with Russell Letter Nos. 740-741 and 743-744 are all dated in February 1916. (This numbering was applied when Russell kept his correspondence sorted by year.) Therefore it is reasonable to date Russell Letter No. 742 as February 1916. It may indicate a missing covering letter for the extract.
Also a transcription and a carbon copy.
