The bulk and principal interest of the papers lie in the letters written by John Wilson to his mother, sister Jane and his wife Jane. Many of the letters relate to Wilson’s early life and shed light on his relations with his family, his life as a student in Glasgow and later in Oxford, and also at Elleray in the Lake District.
