I have checked for further archives and we also hold correspondence for him in the following blocks:
CB6 -1871-1880 - including letter Nov 5 1880, sending translation of a letter he had received from Capt. Rasmussen of the Neptune about his trading voyage to the river Obi, meeting the Oscar Dickson and the ''Louise'' on the way.
CB8 -1911-20 - regarding compilation of 1 Million map

Unfortunately, our correspondence collection is currently off-site being used as part of a project with Wiley-Blackwell. This material should be back by the autumn and you are more than welcome to email me again then and I will take a look at the files and let you know more details.
