John Ashton Savage is my great grandfather, and I would like to access the letters under his name in your archive.
I have visited his house and grave in Tunbridge Wells.

Please make the letters accessible to me

Is Felicity able to say when her great grandfather died, and was he still with the Brethren in Tunbridge Wells? (It is unfortunately impossible to read the date on the gravestone in the photograph).

I am in possession of his "The Scroll of Time: given to my great aunt Elizabeth R Wood, in Jamaica, W I. and inscribed by him.

Another comment: He seems to have had some connection with Jamaica and my ancestors there. He was in contact with the Wood family and perhaps the Powells who were all Brethren as was I for many years, first in Jamaica where I grew up and later in the U S.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

Hi Robin,
Sorry I wasn't able to reply at the time, but a friend told me that J.A.S. went to school in Jamacia, then later he became the first Inspector of Schools in the country, and some of his children were born there.

Logos has Mr. Savage's The One Great Voyage of Life:

Is it possible to get this up on the archive? I see the CBA has a couple of other shorter items.

Nice find! Quite a challenge to get it off there, and the quality isn't great, but readable enough. Let me know if you see anything else of interest on that site.

I have found a poster of the epochs and dispensation of scripture that was given to me by a far as I can tell it has to be from around 1893 ..I found a partial date on a news paper on the back.. you can still see a lot of the gold print that is on it. I'd love to send you a picture of and tell me what you think..
Thanks jason

best, Tom
