    Dear Mr Hart-Davis,

    I will try writing to your agent too, but if this note reaches you, I wondered if you might help me.

    I am writing a fictionalised account of the various hunts for the alleged Jesuit treasure at Sacambaya. I have read the accounts by Stead, Jolly, and Prodgers, and Sanders’ brochure, but there are sources and references in ‘Man of War’ that I have not come across elsewhere. You quote letters from Sanders, articles by Dr Mellows in the Star, and accounts by Hillgarth, which I assume come from his diaries.

    No doubt finding this material was the outcome of many hours of hard work, but I would love to read it if you would let me. It would help enormously.

    Please do email me, or call on 07989945192.

    Kindest,

    Jules
