This chapter describes Oxford's surviving correspondence. These can be roughly divided into five groups: personal letters 1563 to 1604, mostly to William and (later) Robert Cecil (44); draft interrogatories, January 1581 (2); personal memoranda, 1591 to 1597 (4); letters on Cornish tin–mining 1595 to 1599 (18); and memoranda on the same 1595 to 1599 (9). Seventy–four items are entirely in Oxford's italic hand, while two are partly and one entirely in the hand of an amanuensis. The total number of words surviving from Oxford's pen surpasses 50,000.

Keywords:   Edward de Vere, personal letters, Cornish tin mining, William Cecil, Robert Cecil, correspondence
