July 12th 1923
Dental Board of The United Kingdom,
44 Hallam Street,
I duly received your letter of 10th Inst regarding my
Father T.H.Taylor, L.D.S.
In the first place I have forwarded all communications to Mr.
Taylor in South Africa which will no doubt account for his delay
in acknowledging same.
Secondly the position between my father and myself as far as I
understand it is as follows.
In May 1922 Mr. Taylor went to South Africa on a prospecting
holiday with the intention of returning to me and commencing
active practice here at the end of that year. He however got the
opportunity of taking over a practice in Cape Town and I believe
his intention is to work up a good clientele and resell before
As Mr. Taylor informed you he has certain interests in this
practice and when he returns will immediately commence in active
partnership with me.
I have not in way during my fathers absence used his name,
either on the premises or on business headings and would be
obliged to hear from you if I have acted correctly in doing so.
I enclose Mr. Taylor's address.
Thos. T. Taylor.
