Margery Fry was Principal of Somerville College when Hodgkin was an undergraduate. Sharing many political and humanitarian interests, she became a lifelong friend and confidant, though she resigned from Somerville in 1931. Her house in London became a frequent stop on Hodgkin's visits and was where she first met Thomas in 1937.

Letter of 12 Oct. 1936 refers to visit by 'D.W.' (Dorothy Wrinch) and asks Hodgkin to 'cope with P' (Wrinch's daughter Pamela). Letter of Dec. 1937 is addressed to 'Beloved 2'. Also includes obituary of Fry and entry for Fry in Dictionary of National Biography (by Thomas Hodgkin).
