Scope and Contents note:
Selous says he will send photos to be placed alongside those of his old friends Phil [tentatively identified as G.A. "Elephant" Phillips] and Collison. "You can't think how I miss all my old friends of early days in Matabeleland --old Phil perhaps more than anyone else. It seems very strange that although I am not yet 47, I should have outlived almost every one who was either trading or hunting north of the Limpopo five and twenty years ago." Says he is including photos which he thinks make him look younger.

Correspondent tentatively identified as Sir Henry Ernest Gascoyne Bulwer. M134 is the accession number in the Russell E. Train inventory list of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History.
