This collection largely comprises English manuscript newsletters, dating from 1674 to 1715, received and compiled by the Newdigate family of Arbury Hall in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. The letters cover a diverse range of topics, but are mainly concerned with contemporary domestic and Continental news. The finding aid for this collection is available here.
We are sharing these newsletters alongside partial transcriptions, which need completion, editing, and vetting. Special thanks to Shakespeare's World volunteers, who created these transcriptions on the Zooniverse platform, and University of Maryland iSchool students, who extracted and processed those transcriptions so that we could share them here.
