MC:P204/1/5C Letters to Douglas from Harry de Windt
Harry de Windt (1856–1933) was an explorer who travelled extensively all over the world, and wrote many books about his experiences. He and Douglas seem to have been good friends, and de Windt supported him in his campaign against Winston Churchill. He also seems to have intervened to help Douglas deal with problems over his son Raymond’s love life (see the introduction to MC:P204/1/4C above).
