Scope and content

The letters and autographs were possibly collected by Florence Eaton. Some of the letters were probably collected for the signatures or as examples of hand-writing as was the fashion during this period. The intention may have been to present the collection in albums. On some occassions the recipients of the letters are unknown.

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

The letters and autographs have been removed from their original file which was in very poor condition, and placed in archival quality enclosures for long-term preservation purposes. The original file containing the papers was separated into sections and the letters and autographs placed between individual sleeves. The papers have been arranged and numbered in the order in which they were found in the original file.
