TitleLetters
DescriptionA number of additional items were listed in February 1996 and added to the collection. The bulk of this material are letters. They are written mainly to and from family members and cover business and family matters. They are also interesting for the picture they give of the life of a gentry family in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, for example their preoccupation with their health with visits to Bath to drink the waters as a cure for gout (LE40/515) and to the spa at Lucan for it's curative effects (LE40/502). The letters cover such subjects as poteen-making (LE40/602) and the use of the canal to Tullamore as a mode of transport (LE40/483).
