Merran Fraenkel’s Liberia Letters

Letters written to Peter (in London) from Liberia in 1958. The earlier ones were written before Peter followed Merran to Liberia; the later ones after his return from two months with her. The private love-talk has been deleted.  Landing at Monrovia Merran had an accident: She had jumped from the ship’s gangway and wrecked her foot.
