Summary
The collection is primarily letters by Sothern to his managers on his recital bookings. The frequent letters (there are over 200), document the hardships and successes of life on the lecture circuit. There is also one folder of letters and Christmas cards by Marlowe, many written while she was traveling, most to Katharine Brown. Typed transcriptions accompany every letter.
