Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Garnett, D. mss., 1940-1947 and 1969-1970, consist of letters from writer, Rosamond Nina Lehmann, 1901- , to author David Garnett, 1892-1981. In the first of these letters, Lehmann approaches Garnett about adding his name to the list of signatures to the "Manifesto" supporting the People's Convention, an organization opposed to England's involvement in World War II. In other letters, Lehmann mentions her literary activities, thanks Garnett for his favorable response to her novel, The Ballad and the Source, and offers him the use of those of her letters from Dora Carrington that she had kept. In the last letter, Lehmann asks Garnett to return the Carrington letters to her, which letters were to be given over to King's College archives.
