Leonard Woolf

Xeroxed copies of TS:

Letters to Leonard Woolf by E.W. Perera (member of Ceylon Legislative Council 1921) and D.B. Jayatilaka, (Minister for Home Affairs, Ceylon 1931), who were sent by the Sinhalese as representatives to London to try to get the Government to relax the repressive measures following the riots which took place in Ceylon in the 1914 war. They were helped by Woolf.

There is a full descriptive list of the correspondence in the first pages of the typescript; the file of correspondence with Woolf should also be consulted for further information.
