Scope and Content

Four exercise books containing manuscript accounts, in ink and biro, written in the form of 'prison diaries'. These are actually later accounts based on Gliddon's earlier original diaries, notes and first draft autobiographical account. The volumes contain notes in preparation for a typist, and writing plans.

For the most complete 'story' of Gliddon's arrest and imprisonment see her full draft autobiographical account (Ref: 7KGG/1/4).
