Making Sense of Letters

History Matters (a great site) has a section devoted to making sense of letters and diairies: This guide offers an overview of letters and diaries as historical sources and how historians use them, tips on what questions to ask when reading these personal texts, an annotated bibliography, and a guide to finding and using letters and diaries online. It includes some brief letters together with “model interpretations” by historians.
