Letters had been arranged by correspondent prior to cataloguing of the archive. A manuscript list compiled by Ruby Baker (in folder 3 of 3), gives correspondent, topic of letters and an index by named variety of Galanthus. Letters from Edith and Louisa Allen and A.D. Webster relating to James Allen had been noted as missing; missing letters from Edith and Louisa Allen were subsequently found in Mea Allan’s papers and replaced in this folder in 2016
