Correspondence from [Rev Robert Perceval] Graves
Many of the letters concern the Endowed Schools in Ireland, and the Royal Commission. Key figures such as Graves' brother Rev Charles Graves; Lord Carlisle; Dr Hanock; and Stephens are mentioned. The address on the letters from [Robert Perceval] Graves to Martineau is 'Dovenest', although there is evidence to suggest it may have also been written at various times as Dove Nest.
