The early letters are from Thames House in London while Gareth Jones remained a researcher in the employ of David Lloyd George. These letters describe his work and activities there and the interesting people whom he meets and his trips to various places. Later he describes his work as a journalist and his plans and ambitions for the course of his future career. He often refers to the books which he is reading too. Later in 1934 he began his 'around-the-world tour', and there are some letters from a large number of countries describing his events and experiences. There are letters written at New York, Washington DC, Wisconsin, Hollywood (California) during the early part of the tour, and he often refers to the articles which he is writing for various newspapers and journals and to the lectures which he sometimes delivers. Later letters were written at Japan, Hong Kong, Java, Singapore, Siam and China and discuss events and developments in those countries and his ever developing and changing plans for travelling further. Throughout there are references and enquiries about events at home in Barry and south Wales. There are also typescript copies of some of the last letters which he sent to his family during June and July 1935 just before his capture by the 'bandits'.
