Elisha Haley correspondence by Elisha Haley( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Constituent correspondence sent to Elisha Haley, Connecticut's representative to the House of Representatives. Most of the letters are requests for positions (particularly Collector of Taxes), complaints about the tariff, and questions about pensions, lighthouses, post office routes, ports of entry, and government lands. Of particular interest are a series of letters from Edmund Fanning about the voyage of exploration around the world and the unfortunate sinking of the Schooner Fortitude by a number of Indians in the Northwest. Fanning consistently refers to it as the "massacre.' Included with the letters is an account of losses suffered by the owners of the vessel. On December 1, 1836, William L'Hommideau wrote to Haley asking him to present a box of very rare pears to the President. On January 11, 1837, the residents of Norwich asked Haley to help procure federal funds to improve the channel in the Thames River. In addition to the Congressional correspondence, there are three letters from family members, one from his son Giles, 1836, one from his brother Thomas in Illinois, 1863, and another letter from Giles,1863; also some financial records, most notably a large bill sent to Giles Haley
