New owners of a Gulf Islands’ [British Columbia] property were intrigued to find part of an old manuscript when clearing out a cabin. On looking into previous ownership of the property it appears that it once belonged to relatives of Ford Madox Ford, a contemporary of Joseph Conrad, who had co-authored two novels with the famous writer. The couple is having the manuscript evaluated and on initial perusal the handwriting matches that of Joseph Conrad.
