I have added more pages to the previous post containing G.S.V. Wills’ self-published memoirs. Hopefully this little out-of-print book will now slowly find its way to those most curious about the life and times (and memories) of this famed British chemist! Memories can’t be relied upon completely as we all know, however, at least his memories are closer in time to a period in history that would otherwise be somewhat lost for us, the 21st-century-Wills-family descendants. It’s marvelous he left us with this wonderful slice of history. Perhaps someday Sampson Wills’ manuscript (mentioned on p. 13) that records 50 years of business dealings will surface. Such items are genealogical gold.
Have a good weekend!
