Letters from various correspondents, 1871-1940.

Letters to Beal from Winston Churchill (an American author), John William Davis, Frank Billings Kellogg, and Sir Robert Gilbert Vansittart, among many others. Most letters were written when Beal was serving in the American Embassy to Britain and concern daily personal affairs. The letters from Kellogg regard Beal's work at the embassy and professional issues, such as hiring, and include a brief mention of the ratification of the General Pact for the Renunciation of War (the Kellog-Briand Pact of 1928). A letter from George Alexander Phillips Haldane-Duncan, the 4th Earl of Camperdown, written from America, discusses the United States' entry into World War I. A letter from Robert Lansing contains the details of Beal's employment as a Special Agent of the US State Department.
