DescriptionLetters to James Rendel Harris from Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare [scholar, expert on Armenia], and following Conybeare's death, his wife Janie Conybeare. Conybeare advises Rendel Harris which sights he should see in India, and discusses his research interests, which include the Armenian background to the New Testament, their work on the Story of Ahikar and Philo, his discovery of an old version of the Vision of Baruch, and an Armenian version of Plato found in India. He has made a translation of the text of Aristides. He talks about Rendel Harris's possible move to Oxford or Cambridge, sends Rendel Harris a copy of Ephrem's translation of Acts, and talks of editing apocryphal texts, such as the Acts of Peter.
