Scope and Content

Three letters from Anna Maria Hall, dated 1 February [-], 16 February [-] and 29 September 1864. The first letter is concerned with ideas on how to alleviate pressure on dressmakers and needlewomen caused by unreasonable work orders, referring to past strategies of social campaigners. The second letter discusses personal affairs, particularly those of the Edgeworth family. The third letter is largely anecdotal, describing the admiration of a local workman for Turner and his paintings, and comments on the aesthetic standards of 'the poor' in general.
