Since the digitised letters were made available via One Search, State Library volunteers have undertaken transcription of the OM74-101 Maitland Woods Papers 1915-1916. Check the article about The Reverend Woods on this blog to read more about him and this wonderful collection. Now you can also read the transcriptions, as they have just been added to the digitised letters.
