You may search Anna Jameson's correspondences, Harriet Martineau's, or both together. Please note that the default is to search Jameson's.

Within the selected correspondences, you may search by writer, by addressee, by correspondence (Anna Jameson Lady Byron), by date (year), or by people mentioned in the letters, or by a combination of these fields. Enter single or multiple search terms in the fields of your choice, and combine them using the "and" and "or" if desired. If you enter multiple search terms in a single field, all the terms will be searched for in that field (i.e., they will be joined with "and").

If you have any technical problems while accessing the database, please report them to Mark Jordan,
