Description

These letters between Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her father Edward Moulton Barrett were written between 1816 and 1828, starting when Elizabeth was 10 years old. They belong to a larger collection ranging from 1809-30. 

Throughout the letters Elizabeth’s father expresses many normal parental concerns, enquiring after his daughter’s health, for example. Of greatest interest, however, is his encouragement of Elizabeth’s early writing experiments.
