Description: 
Letter in tribute to H. D. Davies from Rev. W. Winchurch. Winchurch describes Davies's essays as 'cultured, humorous', observing that they contained 'classical allusions, quotations from Shakespeare, anecdotes [and] humorous examples of Lancashire dialect'. Winchurch wonders if a memorial volume, containing a history of Manchester United and selections from Davies's reports, would be possible.
