The letters were kept by the family and given to an Australian descendant of Abraham Biggs when they visited England in the 1930s. The present whereabouts of the letters are not known. A descendant of the family had copies made of the letters and passed them onto Miss Biggs who is connected to the Biggs family. There is a surname index at the back and also a pedigree chart.
