Letters, 1921-1922.


Letters, 1921-1922.

The letters were written over the course of a year-long trip around the world that Sharp took with his entire family in 1921-22. The letters are carbon copies, typed from what must have been hand-written originals. Most of the letters are addressed to Frank A. McHugh, private financal secretary to P.S. du Pont, and the remainder to an unidentified "J. C.", who is clearly the child of a friend or family member. One of the letters is from Isabella du Pont Sharp. The itinerary begins in Kyoto and ends in Venice.
