Letters to Timothy Allyn, a retired Hartford dry goods merchant and entrepreneur, from his sons Alexander Hamilton, Arthur W. and Joseph Pratt. Alexander was a business man in Wisconsin. In 1858 he was working for the Western Transportation Company and wrote to his father asking him to purchase one of Colt's latest patent pocket revolver. The city had been infested with burglars and he needed to protect his business. By 1865 he had moved to the country and worked a farm. However, he needed to ask his father for money to tide him over that year. Arthur joined Company Rifle A, Connecticut 1st Infantry Regiment on 25 Apr 1861. He was mustered out on 14 May 1861 and immediately commissioned an officer in the Regular Army 16th Infantry Regiment. In 1861 he wrote from Fall's Church, Virginia, with a sketch of the placement of forts and regiments. In 1862 he mentioned the sudden death of his mother. His letter of April 16, 1865, mourned the assassination of President Lincoln. On August 10, 1865, he sent his father money to purchase revolvers for his friends in the Brigade. Joseph Allyn was in Washington in 1861, working as a Congressional aid and filing stories with the Hartford Courant. He wrote about the preparations for war and expressed concern for the loss of manufacturing should the conflict be prolonged. He was appointed one of the original Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of Arizona Territory where he moved in 1863. His letters to his father in 1865 are primarily requests for money after his failed Congressional bid
