Emphasis on apparently original writings/occasional writings by Hannah More, and More's sisters and friends in youth that might not be found elsewhere.

Others members of this group, which seems to have been active in the 1760s and early 1770s, include William Steele, Miss Hammond, Honour Mary Blandford, Dr. John Langhorne, Anne Steele.
