This collection of correspondence was predominantly written by Horace Wickenden (one note was written by Margaret Wickenden) to friends Ivan and Marjorie Logan. The letters reflect Wickenden’s views on current events, both global and national, with some emphasis on Canadian politics. In them, he also discusses books he has read; philosophy; reflects on teaching and education; and to some extent, relates daily activities and events in his life and that of his family. Very little discussion of art and painting are in the letters, although these, too, are occasional topics: particularly with regard to Robert Hurley, an artist Wickenden clearly admired.
