I D2: CORRESPONDENCE WITH ADELAIDE TAYLOR RE STAFFORD ELECTION: 1842- 55.

6 items: 4 ALS, 2 ALU. Dates: 1842- 55. 2 n.d. Consists entirely of letters from Adelaide Taylor to [Hen. U.] Adelaide Taylor was the wife of Colonel Pringle Taylor who was involved in Chartism and Foreign Affairs Committees. The letters refer to the election of D.U. as M.P. for Stafford (1847), Pringle Taylor, Charles Attwood, David Ross of Bladensburgh (D.R.B.) and Francis Burdett. For Adelaide Taylor see also: III 19 4.

The original catalogue indicates that letters from Marx, D.R.B. and R.Monteith were once contained in this section. The entry for the Marx letter in that catalogue is marked "Missing 1946." It could be that the Marx letter was from Francis not Karl Marx since letters to F.Marx exist elsewhere in the collection.
