Abstract:

Includes letters to Harris from the following individuals: Louisa May Alcott (1 item, 1885); Edward Waldo Emerson (7 items + enclosure, 1891-1907); J. Holtzbecker/Holzbecker (2 items, 1882); Julia Ward Howe (6 items, 1871-1904); Mary Peabody Mann (1 item, 1883?); Elizabeth Palmer Peabody (18 items + enclosure + some typed transcripts, 1881-1888, plus one letter of uncertain authorship, possibly by E.P. Peabody); A.S. (A.L.?) Pratt (1 item, 1887); Anna B. Pratt (5 items, 1888-1890); Franklin Benjamin Sanborn (150 items + enclosures, [1864]-1909); Emily Talbot (1 item, 1881).

(Cont.) Some of the correspondence is in reference to the Concord School of Philosophy. Some of the Sanborn letters concern the American Social Science Association, of which both Sanborn and Harris were officers. The Concord authors provide a recurring theme in the Sanborn letters. One of the Sanborn letters (Dec. 7, 1877) refers to the death of Mrs. A.M. Alcott, one (Mar. 3, 1888) to Bronson Alcott's impending death. One Sanborn letter (Jan. 12, 1890) includes an enclosed ALS (Jan. 7, 1890) from Daniel Chester French about the designing of a bust of Alcott. The later.

(Cont.) Sanborn letters include extensive enclosures. Some of the correspondence is accompanied by information provided by Edith Davidson Harris (W.T. Harris's daughter).
