Letter from A. Machado to the Folk-Lore Society in 1885 - published in The Folk-lore Journal, vol III - probably to G. L. Gomme, who had been his privileged correspondent since 1881. There are subjects such as his unifying ambition, the promotion of his notion of folklore, but also an invitation to set up a museum and organize photographic exhibitions on childhood games, a technique he was developing at that time.
