Last letters of Captain Scott

This morning the BBC reported,

The last letters written by Captain Scott to his family from his doomed trek to the Antarctic are going on public display. The family donated his final correspondence to the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge.

The letters, never published before, reveal Scott as a loving family man, a scientist, and a patriot. His adventures and his ordeals are described in Extreme Journeys.
