Scope and content

These have been arranged in chronological order and numbered 1-2092, with the exception of the undated letters, that is, no's 42-71 and 1880-2092. It would undoubtedly be possible to date a large number of these undated letters with some precision. At the time of sorting, because of pressure of time, next to no attempt was made to do this. Readers should therefore when consulting the dated letters bear in mind the three volumes of undated letters. At the beginning of each of these three volumes is a table of suggested dates which readers are welcome to contribute to. It will be seen that a high proportion of the dated letters are dated only by the postmarks on their envelopes (all of which have been bound with the letters, including the few found empty). A very small number of dated letters, perhaps half a dozen in all, were found in what obviously were not their original envelopes, and removed. One implication of this must be that a small number of undated letters may also at some time have been replaced in the wrong envelopes and may now therefore be out of sequence.
