General Information:

Pioneer Spirit - Ivan [Mitford-Barberton] - After living for some years in his new house [Merrowdown] doing perhaps more sculpture than serious farming, Ivan became restless. ……….. He decided to sell the western part of the farm and this was bought by Alan E. Turnbull. Ivan went to London to study art and I [Raymond M-B] was left with his Power of Attorney. Alan Turnbull sent for me to Eldoret to receive one of the payments and I had to wait several days whilst he sobered up sufficiently to sign the cheque.
