Choose search method

There are two ways to search.

Depending on how you want to use this resource, you can either jump straight to the letter you want to read (if you know its number) – or you can launch our letter browser, which lets you explore all the content.

Our letter explorer is an excellent way to gather information for a research project, as a starting point for a research question or as a quick way to gather information for an essay. You can also launch the letter browser to search by manuscript number or Letter ID.

Use the letter ID search to jump directly to letters that you have already identified as useful or to read through resources that you have found via a footnote or reference.

If you would like to browse the entire collection, then just launch the letter browser and do not enter any search terms.
