The collection in good condition, on lightly-aged paper, with each item carrying a punch-hole in top left-hand corner of first page. Letter One: in manuscript; to Cross; 3 September 1949; on 'Edvard Hambro' letterhead; 8vo, 2 pp. Affectionate letter on Cross's retirement from the Registry of the International Court. '[.] I find the Peace Palace curiously empty without you. I am going to miss your visits to my room and mine to yours. I shall miss our political chats in the mornings and I shall look forward to having you with us again.' After three years working with Cross, he thanks him for 'your co-operation for your skill, for your industry and your patience and most of all the unflagging integrity of your character both in your work and in our personal relations'. Continues in the same vein, before ending with a paragraph relating to Cross's wife. Letter Two: typed; to Cross; 7 January 1750; on letterhead of the International Court (as are the rest of the letters); 4to, 1 p. Short note on the 'Columbian document', with postscript in manuscript. The four letters (each 4to, 1 p) to Mrs Cross (née Alice Dufour) are all in French, and relate to her financial situation following her husband's death, including the attempt to trace an American bank account held by her husband, and to receive a pension from the Belgian Government. Also included are an Autograph Letter Signed (12mo, 2pp; 28 December 1949; with damp-staining to the reverse) by Hambro's wife Elizabeth (daughter of the English artist Gwen Raverat), thanking Cross for her children's Christmas presents; and the carbon of a Typed Letter to Hambro by Cross (12mo, 1 p; dated 7 September 1949).
