Title: Harriet Martineau Papers

In dealing with the contents of the letters only matters which seemed to be of particular interest or importance have been mentioned. Often correspondents addressed their letters to Maria Martineau at times when Harriet Martineau was too ill to write herself. In such cases the letters have been treated as if they were addressed to Harriet herself.
