Scope and Content

These folders contain handwritten letters between Tom Taylor and a variety of correspondents relating to his family and personal life as well as his professional affairs.

In a few cases, letters have purchase receipts or brief research and contextual notes attached, written by Jack Reading.

Where more than one letter from the same person appears but not all are dated, these have been kept together with the earliest dated letter.


Where possible the letters are arranged chronologically. Undated letters are added after all dated letters. Some have the original envelope attached.
