Happy Christmas from the John Oxley Library

It was a great pleasure today to read this Thankyou Card left for the librarians of the John Oxley Library from Susan Laverick of Geneva, Switzerland.

Susan had spent many hours with us in the John Oxley Library Reading Room going through our Rosa Caroline Praed Papers which include interesting items including correspondence from nineteenth century figures such as British PM William Gladstone, Oscar Wilde and Charles Parnell and Justin McCarthy, Irish politicians and advocates for Home Rule.

How enriching it is for us to learn so much from the interesting researchers who come to spend time in the John Oxley Library engaging with our collection.

To Susan and to all of the readers and researchers we have met through the year we wish you a safe and Happy Christmas.
