On y trouve aussi une courte biographie de Forget composée par Robert Painchaud. Cependant, le fonds contient surtout de la correspondance de la part des amis de Forget venant surtout du Collège de Montréal ou de la maison-mère des Soeurs Grises de Montréal. Dans sa correspondance, Forget décrit ses voyages ainsi que ses déboires causés par sa maladie et son désir intense de joindre les rangs des religieux. Cette correspondance nous permet aussi de retracer une partie de l'histoire du Collège de Saint-Boniface et de l'Université du Manitoba. En outre, on y trouve une bonne quantité d'information portant sur les activités du Collège de Montréal et des zouaves pontificaux.
