The papers of Dr. Leander Gage include school exercises and medical notes, 1815-1828, as well as general and professional correspondence, 1813-1840. There is a folder of correspondence between Leander and Anne Sargent at the time of their courtship, 1819-1820.
The correspondence from the 1830s includes numerous letters to and from Rowena Coffin Whitman while she was living in Concord, N.H. Many letters from Concord in this period are partly written by Gage daughters. Much of the correspondence from the 1840's is between Gage and Whitman families while the Whitmans were residing in Washington, D.C.
There is a folder of school exercises, lectures, poetry, etc. undated and 1835-1856, of Phebe Hovey Gage. In the general correspondence are numerous letters to Phebe after she was committed to the Lunatic Asylum in Augusta in 1856.
In 1850 Frances married Humphrey Cousens and afterwards lived in Gorham, Me. She wrote many letters in the 1850s and 1860s to her mother and sisters.
More than one hundred lengthy letters from Mary Sargent Gage to her sisters detail her stay in Europe from 1885-1888. In this period, Mary lived in Kassel, Germany; Geneva, Switzerland; and France, evidently working as a governess for an American family.
Separate folders include letters from Abel Gage to the Gages in Waterford, and letters written in Bath, Me., by Thomas Hovey Gage (1789-1823) and his wife Frances between 1816 and 1827. There are also two folders of letters written by Joel Holkins and Lois Gage Holkins from 1831 to 1850.
The two octavo volumes were written by Anne Sargent Gage's daughters. One is a commonplace book, primarily of poetry, kept by Frances Gage between 1839 and about 1893. The other is a diary kept by Ann Louisa Gage while teaching school in Newton Center, Mass., in 1849 and 1850.
There are also a few financial records in the collection. Included are IOUs of people owing money to Dr. Leander Gage or Anne Sargent Gage in the period 1817-1853, and a small group of receipts dated 1830-1845. Anne Sargent Gage's indebtedness in the years after her husband's death is documented by her accounts in the years 1848-1853 with Oliver Porter, a Waterford merchant who subsequently owned the Gage house.
