Within Sir William Herschel's correspondence are letters from his father and other relatives in Germany. Sir William's "Concerning the Central Powers of the Particles of Matter," "My Idea of Matter," "Remarks on Dr. Priestly's Disquisition on Matter and Spirit," "Interference of Light," notes on astronomy, notes on optics, and various mathematical tables are represented in the collection. A list of the telescopes Sir William constructed and documents relating to his early musical career are also present. Sir William's biographical memoranda from 1758 to 1787, recopied by Caroline Herschel, and the original draft of Sir John's obituary of his father, are included as well. Among Caroline Herschel's correspondence are letters from Carl Gauss, John Haygarth, Alexander von Humboldt, and Joseph Lalande. Caroline Herschel's manuscripts include diaries from 1833 to 1845, biographical memoranda, an autobiography, documents about the disposal of her property, her will, diplomas, the royal warrant for her salary, and her astronomical tables. Her commonplace book of astronomical memoranda records her education as an astronomer. Correspondence by various other members of the Herschel family dates from 1721 to 1951. Correspondence and writings by other scientists, such as George Biddell Airy and John Dalton, complete the miscellaneous series
