This small collection consists primarily of letters from William Morris Davis to his good friend Henry Kirke Brown, a New York sculptor. Present, too, are letters to and from Davis's wife, Elizabeth, and their friends Catherine Brooks Yale and her husband, Linus Yale, developer of the Yale lock. The correspondents discuss Brown's sculptures, fly fishing, forging and casting, religion, machine tools, the Panic of 1857, and Republican politics. Davis also reports Passmore Williamson's imprisonment for contempt of court during a fugitive slave case, 1857, sending his daughter to Theodore Weld's school, his support for Fremont's presidential candidacy, and his criticism of both Buchanan and Lincoln. An 1861 letter gives an account of a confrontation between Jessie Benton Fremont and Francis Preston Blair in St. Louis
