Scope and Contents
Most of these letters are housed with their envelopes. GHWR annotated many of them with the letter writer's full name and occupation and, occasionally, a note of any part he or she played in his theatrical productions. Letters from GHWR to other people are catalogued in the GHWR/X section, except the letters to his mother (GHWR/3/364).
