This report describes the five previously unknown Mansfield stories and collection of Wildean aphorisms that he came across in the ADAM archive. Most significant for Mansfield scholars is ‘A little Episode’, a story which belongs to a painful moment in her life in 1909 after Mansfield had been abandoned by her lover, the musician Garnet Trowell to whom she had become pregnant, and briefly married the music teacher, George Bowden. This vivid, emotionally-charged vignette illuminates a period in Mansfield’s life of which little other record now exists.
