Family correspondence, 1879-1922
Boxes 40-42

Scope and Content Note

The family correspondence found here dates largely from 1879-1922 and is arranged chronologically. The bulk of these letters were written by Augusta Gregory's son Robert Gregory and her husband W.H. Gregory, though letters from Margaret, her daughter-in-law, and her grandson Richard are also contained in the series. Approximately twenty letters written by Augusta Gregory to other family members are included, and these are described in detail in a separate list which follows the container list for this subseries.

Many of Lady Gregory's letters are undated, but those that do have dates fall between 1916 and 1922. A number of these relate to Robert's service in the war. W.H. Gregory's letters to Augusta Gregory include his marriage proposal and later accounts of his travels in the early 1880's. Robert Gregory's letters to his mother describe his activities at school and, later, his military service.

Finding Aid Note

An index to letters written by Lady Gregory that are interfiled in Subseries 5.1 is available [See Index 3].
