Merrill of the American Board regarding situation in Turkey -- whether the family should stay or go in light of a warning from the British government to all British subjects (as Chambers is) "advising them that they remain..at their own risks." Chambers is inclined to stay based on his own view of the situation and from conversations with Franklin Bouillon, Mouaddin Pasha (General Commandant) and Hamid Bey (Civil Administrator).
Kate Seelye's taped reminiscences (probably based on interviews with her daughter Dorothea S. Franck) divided into six files of transcripts. Transcripts have been made into PDFs.
