Series I. Letters from Morris include: 1866 March 25, Hammersmith - results of the general election "rather flattened us down: people could see only two parties... and would not listen to us"; split in the Social Democratic Federation; rioting in Piccadilly; publishing Commonweal. "As for Socialism I must say that in spite of all faults and follies of the party I am encouraged about the movement"; 1884 Dec. 28, Hammersmith - regarding H.H. Champion, H.M. Hyndman and a split in the S.D.F.; 1889(?) Jan. 10, Hammersmith - "even if Commonweal and the League drop I shall find something to do in the party"; 1889 Dec. 3, Hammersmith - publication of Commonweal threatened. With a letter from May Morris, 1914 Jan. 30, Kelmscott Manor - thanks for sympathy on death of Jane Morris. Mentions Carruthers' having been Morris's "companion on the cruel voyage of death" to Spitsbergen.

Series II. Spitsbergen diary, 1896 July 22-Aug. 17. Carruthers' account of the voyage to the North Cape of Norway which Morris undertook to improve his health. Carruthers notes in the daily log Morris' mental attitude and physical condition.

Series III. Letters from May Morris (Sparling) to Amy Jane Carruthers (Tozer) discuss health, the weather, trips abroad and personal matters. In a letter of 1932 May Morris discusses weavings made with her "Icelandic friends" for the Kelmscott Church. Series also includes one letter from Sydney C. Cockerell, Morris' secretary (1910 Sept 7, Sussex), mentioning "a horrid church congress," and one letter from William De Morgan (1915 Nov. 28, London) thanking her for a book and confessing that "all my wits are at work on anti-Zeppelins and anti-submarines and anti-Kultur generally." Separate notes by Amy Jane Carruthers identify personages discussed in individual letters.
