When documenting unpublished letters, should the descriptions of the letters that are used in place of a title appear in quotation marks or italics?
If I am citing more than one letter written by the same person, how should I distinguish the letters in my in-text citation? For unpublished letters, provide a generic description in place of the title (see pp. 28–29 of the MLA Handbook); do not enclose the description in quotation marks or italicize it. For example: Benton, Thomas Hart. Letter to Charles Fremont. 22 June 1847. John Charles Fremont Papers, Southwest Museum Library, Los Angeles.
