The letters date from 1963 to 1971, a period when Ure's innovative contribution to Scottish Theatre was beginning to make its mark. Writing both under her literary pseudonym and her real name, Betty Clark, she sends John an intimate account of her literary and personal relationships, preoccupations, and commentaries on her creative output

Correspondence is published by Ki Publishing Co-operative, and was compiled by the archivist and author John Cairns and edited by Karen F. Smith
