Correspondence with neighboring governors and colonial agents, memorials to Parliament, resolves and acts of the Governor and Council, and requests for data from the Lords Commissioners for Trade and Plantations. These were received or written by Governor of Connecticut Joseph Talcott. A considerable number of documents relate to setting boundaries between Connecticut and neighboring New York and Rhode Island and an equally significant number were between the Governor and Connecticut's agents in London Jeremiah Dummer, Jonathan Belcher, and Francis Wilks. In addition to the boundary disputes, the colony dealt with two additional crises, the case of the Mohegan Indians against Captain John Mason, and the War of Jenkin's Ear (Anglo-Spanish War) in which the colonies were expected to raise troops for expeditions to Cuba. Several documents written by Jonathan Law to Talcott explain colonial law in respect to intestate estates and taxes.
