Abstract:

A letter to Dr. Francis H. Brown, 1870 October 19, replies to a request for an article for a special students' issue of the "Medical Journal." Eliot regrets that he has nothing appropriate and no time in which to write something new.

A letter, 1870 December 19, from Eli T. Tappan, president of Kenyon College, discusses the formation of a National Teachers Association and the election of officers in particular, as well as the unanimous election of President Eliot as President of the Department of Higher Instruction of the NTA.

A letter, 1870 December 26, to Tappan, declines the Presidency of the Department of Higher Instruction of the National Teachers Association and urges the reinstatement of President Read. Mentions his need to take advantage of the vacation season and gives a brief overview of the New England Association of Colleges.

A letter to William A. Wheeler, 1871 August 20, conveys the honorary degree of MA in recognition of contributions to American letters.

A letter, 1878 November 5, asks George G. Crocker to speak at the Latin School dinner. President Eliot mentions he will introduce Crocker by talking about his services in the present political campaign.

A letter to S.S. McClure, 1898 April 27, declines to participate in the symposium on "your favorite American hero."

A series of letters to Dr. William Patten, 1809-1815, concerns the publication of the Harvard Classics. Topics include an appropriate title; a refrain from advertising targeting Harvard graduates; edits to the advertising; promotional articles published in Colliers and elsewhere; indexing and volume numbers; and volumes suitable for students [Junior Classics.].

There are also two undated autographs, one from the closing of a letter to Messrs Houghton & Co.
