Scope and Content

Two pages of draft typescript for Doherty's second adult novel, 'The Vinegar Jar', first published in 1994. The pages, which describe Alice [renamed as Rose in the printed version] telling Gordon the story of how Winnat's Pass came to be formed, are not marked or annotated in any way.

Several of Doherty's poems, which appear in the file of poetry drafts [BD/05/01], also appear to have influenced the book and were incorporated into the text in prose form at various points in the book.
