In Patterson's Own Hand

Organ_sml2302.jpg Just to prove that we weren't having you on, with that whole Patterson Challenge thing - walking 15 odd miles in challenging weather conditions and photographing all and sundry with frozen fingers - joy abounding, the relevant pages of Patterson's diary are now available online! Yes, perhaps inspired by our ardent 150th anniversary keenness to recreate the Victorian tourist trek, the archivists have scanned them in and stuck them online so you can read his actual travelogue for 27 December 1858 in his own fair hand. There's loads more to read, of course, so if you're interested you can find out how to join the library and access the actual diary artefact. But to relive the Challenge day, simply visit this Wellcome link and search for "James Patterson's Diary". (Image / Brett)
