There are also a book of fair copies of her published poems (cl860-1873) and four commonplace books running from cl830-1866. Most of her library and copies of most of her published works are still at Whitfield, with some annotations in her handwriting. Her collection of autographs (which includes letters to her from notable contemporaries including Mary Russell Mitford (1787-1855), Harriet Martineau (1802-1876), Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865), and W. M. Thackeray (1811-1863) and her letter books (which include letters from other friends and members of her family) also survive.
Most interesting of all are the five volumes of her diary which runs from early 1841 to February 1865. The first volume was begun by Archer Clive in 1838. These have been microfilmed and are available to readers in that form both in Solihull Public Library and in Warwickshire County Record Office.
