The 13 boxes include material relating to her work as a correspondent in the First World War, notebooks, manuscripts, typescripts of plays, essays and poems, fan letters, correspondence from the 1940s and 1950s. There are two copies of The Paper Chase, 1908 and 1909, two watercolours 'Toute passe' and 'My Town'. The five albums include photographs and newspaper cuttings of Jesse's journalism and the reviews.
