Scope and Content Note

Christine Reeve was the wife of Henry Reeve, 1813-1895, well-known in literary, social, and political circles. She was the author of a popular book on cookery and housekeeping.
These manuscripts are all typescript copies of the originals with some holography corrections by the author. It is probable that they were prepared for J.K. Laughton, her husband's biographer.
