Description: BADEN-POWELL ROBERT: (1857-1941) British Lieutenant General, founder of the Scout movement. An interesting T.L.S., Robert Baden Powell, four pages, 4to, Queenstown, South Africa, 25th February 1927, to Colonel Smedley Williams. Baden-Powell announces 'I was very pleased indeed to find the Scout Movement so much alive in East London. Well, I don't see how it could well be otherwise with you at the head…..and such a keen lot of Scouters and Lady Cub-masters' and continues his letter with seven headed paragraphs, in part, 'Rovers: I am glad that you have got the germs of Rovering started. It means such a lot to young fellows going out into life…I would like to congratulate you on the Scouty Lunch Club as a grand institution for bringing all together and fostering the Scout spirit. I should like to give the call to all ex-Scouts….to remember Lord Kitchener's saying “Once a Scout always a Scout”, and to roll up and rejoin our jolly Brotherhood either as Associates or Rovers and to give a hand as far as they can in pushing the Movement to the big development which lies before it. Scouts I would like to thank the Scouts for their splendid response to my request to do something at Christmas to the poorer children, including coloured and native youngsters, who through no fault of their own happen not to be white, but who can enjoy a day's happiness just as much as any of us. As a result of the Scouts' good turn these will have a greater feeling of good-will towards the whites…..Cubs I ought to have congratulated the Cubs….on the excellent and novel displays which they gave at the Rally. At the same time I should like to see more of them with Badges….and are doing their best….The Public The Public and Parents cannot fail to feel indebted to you and to those patriotic men and women who devote themselves to running the show for the good of their boys…..Schools I am glad that you personally have been one of the first of the educationists here to recognise the Educational value of Scouting…..The Future Now that I have nearly completed my tour of South Africa I am more than ever convinced of the power which Scouting possesses to help Education in developing the character and qualities needed in the men and women who will have the making of this country in their hands. So I urge you and your staff to continue your efforts, to consolidate your forces, and to make a bold forward move to develop Scouting on a yet wider footing, and so to impregnate a larger leaven of the youth with the right spirit and abilities. Personally I shall watch your onward progress with the greatest hope and closest interest…..Meantime to every Scouter, Rover, Scout and Cub I would commend this slogan, not merely as a precept but as one to say to yourself and to put into daily action in all that you do. “My country is a fine one, but I am going to do my bit towards making it yet a finer one”'. An unusually lengthy letter with fine content relating to the Scouting movement. With numerous light pencil marks throughout the text and some light creasing and minor overall age wear, some small pinholes to the upper left corner of each page, G
