Addressed to 'Dear Stanhope', the letter covers subjects including reminiscences of Oxford, the anxiety and worry of the War and his cricket work at Lord's. Regarding cricket, Warner remembers the umpire, 'old Thoms... He was a rare character and a very good judge of cricket'. Also 'About that hit for 10 at Winchester... You are quite right in saying that it was a fine glance to leg. So many people accuse me of having bowled a rotten long hop or full pitch!'. Warner also remembers 'Poor Harry Hunt [John Henry Sneyd Hunt, Middlesex 1904-1912] was killed in the last war. He was a great fellow in every way and a fine cricketer especially in the field' and refers to a catch taken by Hunt 'at Lord's in the Middlesex and Lancashire match about 1905. I can see it now. He ran at full speed from his left to straight behind the bowler in front of the Pavilion rails and held a hard drive with his left hand out stretched somewhere about the height of his head... I mentioned it in that book of mine "My Cricketing Life", which was published in 1921. I am afraid you may find it difficult to get today as it is said to be out of print. Publishers never print enough copies of books by cricketers!'. He closes by bemoaning the lack of cricket, 'A big match for the Red Cross which we had arranged for yesterday and today had to be cancelled. I feel like joining the Corps which takes in men up to 60. With a hat on I might pass for less than hat though I am 66'. Signed in ink 'Plum'.

The first, a single page handwritten letter dated 24th January 1927, is from Clem Gibson (Sussex & Cambridge University 1919-1926) who captained the Argentina team in four 'Test' matches played. The letter is full of gratitude and praise for Warner and the popularity of his team. With the three match series drawn an extra deciding match was arranged. 'There is no doubt as you yourself really know which was the better side, and it was only a question of time as to when you would find your true form'. Gibson closes by saying, 'Personally I shall always be able to tell the world that I once skipped the Argentine side in a series of matches against Plum Warner and although walloped, enjoyed it thoroughly. Yours ever, Clem'. The other letter, four pages handwritten in ink, is written from 'Gibbs & Co, Valparaiso', and dated 29th January 1927. Written in a similarly effusive vein the letter relates to the Chile leg of the tour. The correspondent's name cannot been identified, but he had hosted Warner while in Chile.

It has only appeared in an obscure local magazine in the north, which died after the first few numbers. I shall re-model the story', and concludes with her terms of payment. The second letter, dated the following day, 25th April 1898, is in response to the acceptance for publication of her story, and confirming the arrangements for the typing of the script, 'I could do it in 2 or 3 days & send it to Mrs Dickens to type. She would let you have it at the end of the week. Will that do?' and asks to see proofs for checking '[as] I can't endure any slip-slop expressions'. In a postscript she writes, 'My husband to play for Glo'shire & knows "The Doctor" well. I am sure he would tell you any thing he could about him with pleasure. He [Grace] is 50'. The third letter, dated 28th May 1898, relates to the printer's proofs of the story, 'Here are the proofs. I would have sent them before, but my husband has crushed his hand & can't write so I am his secretary for a while. It's most unfortunate & spoils all his cricket.
