Raban, Percy, 4/20/1914
Gift of William E. Weiss.
When Russell exhibited his paintings in London, he visited the sights and wrote back home to his friends such as Percy Raban.
April 20, 1914
here I am in old London an Its [?] antique
I was up north of the big camp the other day where stands an old monistary all so a wall built by the romans built I suppose to protect them from Dinny Doolins forefathers who crossed the chanel once an a while in there bull boats healed with clubs of black thorne an stone axes to pruve to the gladitors that life wasent no lengethy picknie
I was told that this country was also the home range of William the Conqueror a gentle man whos history would make Sitting Bull look like Brother Van
I found a pach of woods that was realy lonsum an I couldent help but wonder what would happen . if the wheel of time would slip her slip her cogs an slide back to the tenth sentury like Mark Twains yankie A fine chance Id a stood in this timber afoot
if Bill [?] an his bunch of killers had of rode on to me dressed in there steel chain union suits theird been nothing for me but take my hat off an make a squaring talk or sing God save the King
Well Percy I will have to close as we are going out in the country with best whishes from us both to you and yors
