Abstract:

Correspondence (87 items, 1783-1846), chiefly created by or written to Samuel Delano, Jr.; 14 letters written between the brothers, Amasa and Samuel Delano, Jr. Of special note are the letters written by Amasa Delano during his first circumnavigation of the globe, specifically one dated 1792 to George Partridge. Many of the letters written by Samuel Delano, Jr., especially those to his sons, reflect the religiosity of the Second Great Awakening. The collection also contains 4 log books of Samuel Delano, Jr., including one from the Pilgrim (1803-1805), the vessel used during a sealing expedition to the South Seas. The Pilgrim's voyage is also chronicled in Amasa Delano's autobiographical Voyages (1818). Also of interest is the log book of the brig Grace (1791) on which Samuel Delano, Jr., explored the Pacific Northwest. Passages in this logbook chronicle the death and burial of the Grace's captain William Douglas. There are also shipping related documents belonging to both Amasa and Samuel Delano, Jr., as well as 345 financial papers (1786-1839), books, ledgers, and daybooks, documenting the shipbuilding and shipping businesses of the brothers. Also includes 22 printed or published items, including a copy of Amasa Delano's A Narrative of Voyages and Travels in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (1817) . Also of note are 3 pages from Reverend Wright's Complete British Family Bible (1792), The Mariner's Compass Rectified (1763), and other early 19th century works. Correspondents of Samuel Delano, Jr., include his wife, Lucy (Winsor) Delano and sons Henry T. Delano, Benjamin Franklin Delano, and Samuel Delano III.
