Letter written to Jean McDonal Gallup in Hampstead. With the original envelope.

"My cousin tells me that you would like me to write a letter for your book-I havent much to say because I find England is so dull after the Antarctic, where I came from; but I am quite sure you will thank me for telling you even this, when we meet, which I hope will be someday, in the  meantime I'm hoping you will not mind bad grammar...."

 

Under Scott's leadership, the National Antarctic Expedition of 1901­-1904 on the HMS Discovery had explored the interior of the Antarctic continent, surveyed the coast of South Victoria Land, sounded the Ross Sea and discovered King Edward VII Land. On this expedition, Scott proved to be a competent scientific investigator and leader and was promoted to captain upon his return to England.
