Letter to Robert Falcon Scott about vote

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle to Robert Falcon Scott, from Undershaw, Hinhead, Haslemere, regarding his membership to the Sheringham Golf Club. Robert Falcon Scott was elected a member of Sheringham Golf Club in 1906, apparently with the assistance of Arthur Conan Doyle. [1]

Captain Robert Falcon Scott CVO (6 june 1868 - c. 29 march 1912) was a Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery expedition of 1901–1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition of 1910–1913.


Letter

My dear Scott,

Many thanks for your kind note. I shall certainly endeavour to vote for you on the 8th.

With all kind regards,

Yours very truly,

A. Conan Doyle.
