Scope and Content Note

Lady Gregory's general correspondence relates to a wide range of matters. Unlike the family correspondence, these letters are arranged alphabetically by the name of Lady Gregory's correspondent. The correspondents represented here include writers such as George Russell (A.E.), Padraic Colum, and Sean O'Casey; actors such as William Fay and Arthur Sinclair; the publisher George Putnam, and others. A number of the correspondents had some relationship to the Abbey Theatre such as Lennox Robinson and Michael Dolan.

The general correspondence dates largely from the last thirty years of Lady Gregory's life, though there is some earlier correspondence and some posthumous correspondence. The subjects covered vary widely, though a number relate to the Abbey Theatre in some fashion whether it be regarding the production of plays, the schedule, or the performances themselves.

A small number of these letters are not to or from LadyGregory. These letters were found with Lady Gregory's but do not concern family matters. Of special note are two group letters to the press. Among those signing the first of these is W.B. Yeats and George Russell.

Unidentified fragments of letters and illegible letters are filed at the end of the series by date.
