Abstracts of many of our early modern letters can be found in EMLO (Early Modern Letters Online), and we continue to add to that database. Since 2016 the Bodleian Student Editions workshops have contributed new material to EMLO, and created transcripts of a range of letters. The pandemic put a temporary halt to this, but now we want to start the workshops once more and continue to reveal the nature of these hidden treasures. Having already transcribed the letters of a remarkable Georgian lady, Penelope Maitland we have decided to extend the project and look at the letters to her from her sister Maria Cowper, 1780-1794.
