Letters

This page can be used to search, filter, sort, and download any or all of the Private Voices corpus content as a simple spreadsheet. We do not offer sophisticated text analysis tools on the site for the simple reason that such good options are available elsewhere. Check out Alan Liu’s curated list of text analysis tools, for instance. Or if you are new to corpus analysis, you might start with this tutorial from Programming Historian.
