Abstract:

Consists chiefly of letters written to John Chipman Gray and his wife, Anna Lyman Mason Gray, many of which are RSVPs to social engagements from notable Boston and Harvard figures. Other topics include John Gray's legal writings and lectures and Anna Gray's poetry. Includes two autograph letters of Daniel Webster (addressed to others), and several letters of condolence from acquaintances such as Abbott Lawrence Lowell on the occasion of John Gray's death. The collection also includes letters to other members of the Gray family and some Gray family ephemera, such as stock certificates.

Items concerning Japan include a letter from Isabella Stewart Gardner describing her impressions of Japanese culture and society, a letter from Fanny MacVeagh, wife of the American ambassador to Japan, describing the landscape and culture, and a collection of letters from John Gray's former student Kentaro Kanako, a Japanese noble and diplomat, whose letters describe the politics, government, and society of Japan and express great nostalgia for Boston society. He also discusses newly published political science works and his translations of many such works. Kanako visited the United States several times and wrote to the Grays from both Japan and the United States.
