World War II Letters From Troy Residents – Gay Kimball Library Troy NH
Two letters Moss wrote home during this period--to his wife, Thomasina, and sister-in-law, Maria--have recently been discovered in the possession of Mary Moss of Meonstoke, United Kingdom. She is the widow of Moss's grandson Robert. Edward Moss's skill in observing, recording, and analyzing the world around him was a product of his scientific training and was put to good use by the British Navy.
His letters show that he was also a careful observer of human nature. The two letters published here for the first time, besides giving us useful information about Schliemann's excavations, help us to view Schliemann from the perspective of a discriminating contemporary and throw interesting sidelights on his enigmatic character. The light they throw on Schliemann and his excavations is particularly welcome because of the loss of both the excavation notebook and the copies of his outgoing letters for that year.
Traill , a professor of classics at the University of California, Davis, has written extensively on Schliemann's life and work. Paul C.
Appleton , a retired history teacher living in Victoria, British Columbia, is writing a biography of Moss. The authors would like to thank Mary Moss for kindly allowing them to publish the Edward L. Each letter should explain the value in using the library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you—and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.
