For information on Kernahan, see his entry in the Oxford DNB. The eleven items are in fair condition, lightly aged and worn, and total seventeen pages in autograph and two pages typed. Most of the letters have the year added in pencil in another hand, of the other two letters without a year, one (from Fawndene) is dated 2 January [1927]; and the other (from Frognal) has no date at all [January 1928?]. Kernahan's handwriting is difficult to decipher, and the readings from the autograph letters are tentative.
