Abstract:

Collection strengths include the family correspondence of Jane Porter, Robert Ker Porter, and Anna Maria Porter spanning the years 1795-1841. The letters describe the social customs of the Regency and early Victorian eras, as well as the family's struggle to maintain an expected place in society despite great financial difficulties. The letters also mention, over the years, various novels, plays, and travel narratives the Porters are writing and publishing. The main weakness of the collection is the lack of manuscript material for Jane, Robert Ker, and Anna Maria Porter.
