by Lance Sieveking
In a prisoner-of-war camp in 1917 Lance Sieveking first met Hugh Kingsmill and John Holms, who were close friends and very remarkable men. Kingsmill became a distinguished author but Holms, who was regarded by some as even more talented, left no permanent writing except a few unfinished verses and his letters to Hugh Kingsmill, some of which are in Lance Sieveking's possession.

Appeal on behalf of the Empire Rheumatism Council by Miss Pat Smythe, O.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Pat Smythe , [address removed]
The rheumatic diseases-rheumatism, arthritis, osteo-arthritis, fibrositis-are today one of the most widespread forms of painful illness and cause more absenteeism in industry than anything else. They cripple men, women, and children of all ages, but little is yet known of their causes.
A few years ago the Empire Rheumatism Council, a voluntary body, was formed to further the study of these diseases. In spite of a shortage of funds, for it is not State aided, the Council has since done a great deal towards research and education. Among other activities it has financed research in and supplied equipment to hospitals and universities, organised lectures, initiated the first Chair of Rheumatology in the British Commonwealth at Manchester University, and established recently a mobile unit for field research.
The urgent need now is for funds so that research may be further intensified and these diseases finally conquered.

Produced by James Crampsey
Darsie Latimer, in his quest for the solution to the mystery of his birth and inheritance, is now more bewildered than ever. The Laird' (his rescuer from the Solway quicksands, alias Mr. Herries of Birrenswork), the Edinburgh lawyer Alexander Fairford, even Willie Stevenson the fiddler, all seem to know more about him than he himself does. He has again met his Dulcinea, the girl in the green mantle. Miss Lilias, for so is she named, has warned him that the sooner he is away from the Solway the better for his skin. The blind fiddler, Wandering Willie, is equally grave in his foreboding of danger.
Meanwhile Alan Fairford, now embarked on his first cause in law, that of Peter Peebles, finds that even here there are intertwinings with the fate and fortune of his friend Darsie Latimer.
