An Unpublished Letter of Sir John Franklin [Sir John Franklin's last letter to his friend and comrade, Dr (later Sir John) Richardson, is in the possession of Lt.-Col. P. V. W. Gell, of Hopton Hall, Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Colonel Gell, who is a great-grandson of Franklin, has kindly supplied the Institute with a copy and given permission for it to be published in the Polar Record. It throws much light on Franklin's plans for his final expedition and we are grateful for the opportunity to give it publication.]
