Abstract:

Letters to and from members of the Curtis family of Brooklyn, N.Y. and their friends. Many of the letters were written by Samuel Curtis, who was employed as a printer in Mobile, Ala., to his wife Sarah M. Curtis in Brooklyn. These letters describe business, social, political, and religious activity in Mobile. Three of them provide accounts of Henry Clay's visit to that city in 1843. Other subjects include yellow fever and slaves. Topics covered in other letters include religious events in Raleigh, N.C.; the Caldwell Institute in Greensboro, N.C.; Irish neighbors in N.Y.; and Fanny Kemble Butler's reading of Shakespeare. Two letters provide descriptions of Chapel Hill, N.C. and Bogota, Colombia. Some letters from the Curtis children are included.
