The plan is that over the course of the next few years we will hold occasional GRs of the letters, with a view to eventually reading all of the letters contained in the Le Faye edition.
It will be a long, but hopefully not a bumpy ride :-)
I find the letters absolutely fascinating: they give us such an intimate insight into JA 's life : some are missing,some tampered with,but those that remain are fascinating little puzzles which reveal an awful lot about JA,IMHO.
I really look froward to reading them in your company.
Myretta will be scanning in and posting some facsimiles of the letters during the course of the GR: the originals are ,IMO,very hard to read and decipher but it is fascinating to see them as JA wrote them ( or at least as they have descended to us!)
Oops,nearly forgot! I think the archive of these GRs will be useful in general, but these GRs give us the opportunity to create a really exhaustive index to the letters, which would be a boon for anyone searching for that elusive JA comment on a particular topic.
So- perhaps we can all get together next week,at the end of the GR, and compile a list of topics covered in this section with page refernces,which we can maintain as the GRs continue?
And now.. to the first letter...
