    The collection consists of correspondence to Dicksy M. Bagby from her friends and relatives (1891-1896). Exception to this is one letter from Dicksy to her mother with commentary on the death of a mutual acquaintance. Many of the letters are of an amorous, personal nature written by the many suitors of Miss Bagby. Others from family and friends discuss various social activities: church, parties, dances, planned excursions, etc. Correspondence reveals that Dicksy Bagby was employed as a school teacher. The bulk of this correspondence is of interest primarily through its reflection of social conditions, cultural mores, and climate conditions in Virginia (especially Richmond and Newport News) during this period.
