OXTON Merseyside
St. Saviour

Litany desk 1921.  Dart and Francis’ letters tell the story of the journey of this small piece.

23 March 1921 (from D & F)

In accordance with your instructions given Mr. Francis we will consign the work to

Rev. J. B. Sawyer, M. A.,
St. Saviour’s Church
Oxton
Birkenhead

16 June 1921 - desk despatched.

18 July 1921 (from Oxton) - the desk had not arrived, they said. D & F agreed to contact the railway company, and in the meantime sent them a photo of their desk.

22 July 1921 (from D & F) - to say that the litany desk WAS delivered on 23 June

…We hope it has been stored safely, and in the dry.

There being no further correspondence, one can only assume that the good people of Oxton found their litany desk and set it in the church.
