R. Roy letter to C. Davenport, about albinism

9/22/16 File Albinism 341 W. 24th Street New York, N. Y. 3/15/16. DATA Dr. C. B. Davenport Dear Sir: I received your kind letter and cheque. I give you permission to use the manes[sic] of myself and family along with the photographs. Mr. Robert Roy - Mrs. Annie L. Roy - and son, King Charles Roy. (Albinos) But do not forget to mention in your book that King Charles Roy is the first and only Albino child born in the United States of Albino Parents, as we have no record of any other. Both his mother and himself were born in the state of Pennsylvania. I was born in New York City. If there are any other particulars you would like to know, I shall be glad to inform you. Yours respectfully, Robert Roy.
