1-225: Letters to Edward Rose
There are many letters from actors, actresses and theatre managers about current productions for the London stage and for tours in the provinces. A few letters mention the production of Rose's plays in the U.S.A. There are letters from hopeful authors offering their novels for dramatization, from people agreeing or declining to lecture to the Playgoers' Club, and from friends wanting theatre tickets. Two owners of stately homes, Lord Barnard and Lord Donington, wrote to Rose in connection with his articles in the Illustrated London news. Rose's Fabian interests are reflected by letters from Sidney Webb about the scholarships he was endowing. There are also letters from the African traveller Mary Kingsley, who was evidently a friend of Mrs Rose. Many letters are undated, but the majority of these are probably from the 1890s.
226-237: Biographical and miscellaneous material
