Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The letters from Carrington to Margaret Waley deal mostly with work commissioned by Waley, including painted tiles, a fireplace and lampshades, but they also contain details of Carrington's life at Ham Spray House. By 1928 Ralph Partridge was involved in a serious relationship with Frances Marshall whilst Lytton Strachey, whom Carrington loved, was spending much of his time in Cambridge. This meant that Carrington was often alone at Ham Spray House and her correspondence touches upon her loneliness.
