Mr Broughton, Sir:

ref; Chilton Papers

Received your letter dated Nov. 2l inst. Firstly, please find 26 papers' which include 465 pages of the late Kenneth Edward Chilton. They constitute the final memorabilia which were in my files of Chilton. All taped conversations, letters and notations between him and this registry are now destroyed. It was my intent to write his biography, but,under advisement of my doctor, now I shall not. These papers being the final section of my to be placed, my registry is now closed after 38 years of chronicling and have destroyed my seal.

To answer your letter.

ref; Daniel Brand Marsh

All papers of the late Rev., Dr. D B Marsh are now in the hands of Rev. Norman Green. They include the daily chronicle
and 98 wet plate pistures of the 1905 solar eclipse expedition to Labrador, family albums, papers and news paperer articles. Also included is mv collection of astronomical slides taken during my 20 years in amateur astronomy. I have written to the granddaughter of Marsh, a Mrs Jean Hansen of Owen Sound, explaining this move to her. It was wy intent also to write about the xxxxxx beginning of organized astronomy in the Niagara Peninsula and the title was to have been, "A Song For The Stars". But for health reasons this is no longer possible. If I may be of further service to you, please write, or contact the Rev. Norman Green.

Sincerely,

(signed)

Robert Lang
