The letters written by Mrs. Owen contain a great deal of information about her son, his manuscripts and papers, and the preparations for the 1931 edition of the POEMS edited by Edmund Blunden. The Harold Owen letters cover a wide range of subjects are of particular interest for the information about the writing of his book, JOURNEY FROM OBSCURITY: MEMOIRS OF THE OWEN FAMILY. There are also three poetry manuscripts in the collection: autograph manuscript of "The Blind" (published as "The Sentry"), 37 lines, 2pp., September 1918; autograph manuscript of "Spring Offensive," 18 lines, 1 p., September 1918, early draft of the poem as published in POEMS, 1920, edited by Sassoon; and autograph manuscript of "Shadwell Stair," 16 lines, 1 p., ca. November 1917.
