Correspondence with H.H. the Fon of Bum - 1960-1962


'On our return, as arranged, we wrote to the Fon with questions derived from re-reading our notes on the Assessment Report on Bum (J.H.H. Pollock, ADO, 1927), and the subsequent Intelligence Report (W.M. Bridges, ADO, 1933), and notes made by M.D.W. Jeffreys in 1941 of an interview with Missom at Fonfuka - later published as 'Some Notes on the Bum', Nigerian Field, vol. xxxvii, 1962. The original correspondence is deposited at the British Library of Political and Economic Science (London School of Economics) with other Kaberry papers: there is a hand list.' E.M.C.
