Correspondence from Maxwell Ray to his mother and his sister. These include a series of postcards sent to his sister Barbara from most of the ports he stopped at between January and March 1938, accompanied by a letter from Bombay on the same trip. Most of the postcards and the letter paper are produced by the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company. There is also a letter from Maxwell to his mother, dated 9th September (possibly 1939), a telegram to his family, dated May 1940, and a three page letter to his sister, dated June 1940. Ironically, in the last letter he expresses concern that his family may be vulnerable in their home on the south coast of England.
