      Letter relating to various personal matters as well as interesting snippet regarding the publication of Napoleon Noel's book on 'The History of the Brethren.' It appears Mr Hammond was not keen on the book being published at all, which explains why this was done by Christopher Knapp in the USA.

About ten years ago I found sufficient evidence to satisfy myself that Cyril Alfred Hammond was not a relative of Henry Anthony Hammond [1829-1908] in whose Hampshire home JND died in 1882. Cyril Alfred was born just outside Portsmouth in 1877. His father Joseph Hammond was a brewing manager and Cyril Alfred became a commercial traveller dealing in drapery. In 1911 he was living in Clapham Park with his wife Florence Annie, together with their son and two daughters, Hilda and Grace. I suspect that these were the "Misses Hammond" who managed the 'C.A. Hammond' bookshop in Little Britain, off St Martin's le Grand at the back of St Paul's Cathedral,— a bibliophile's haven, where I spent many hours as a boy in the 1950s. Timothy Stunt

(July 1877 to July 1960)
AT 7.40 a.m. on Monday, 4th July 1960, after some six months of increasing weakness, the beloved Publisher of this magazine passed peacefully into the presence of his Saviour. On behalf of readers, at home and abroad, we extend deepest Christian sympathy to his widow and family in their bereavement. Whilst Mr. Hammond was a tireless worker in various spheres of service for the Lord, readers of WORDS OF HELP will, of course, remember him specially for his important share in the production and distribution of Christian literature, to which he devoted the greater part of his time and thought during the past forty years. The interment took* place on Friday, 8th July, at Streatham Cemetery in the presence of a large company of friends. The service was conducted by Mr. John Weston, who spoke with comforting assurance of the glorious victory over death which the Lord Jesus Christ has given to "His own." "O death, where is thy sting? . . . Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory." (I Cor. xv. 55, 57)
