Volume two of The Collected Letters of Joanna Baillie features her correspondence with Margaret Holford Hodson, Lady Byron, Mary Montgomery, and Anna Jameson. Other letters reveal her respect and admiration for Sir Walter Scott, as well as her connections to American writers and theologians living in the Boston area in the early-to-mid 1800s. The book includes much of the biographical evidence missing in previous portraits of Joanna Baillie but essential for future critical inquiry.
