Abstract:

Three letters (1812-1858) and a claim decision (contemporary copy, 1838), together with twenty-nine sermons, letters, autobiographical excerpts, documents, essays, Indian language mss., etc., originally contained in a scrapbook (1758-1846) consisting of materials by Williams, documents pertaining to Oneida and Menominee affairs, and mss. by and about Williams family members.

The document and single letters with correspondents including Jedediah Morse and N.Y. Lieut. Gov. John Tayler concern the publication of Iroquois language tracts, Oneida factions and government relations, and Williams' efforts to obtain U.S. government compensation for his efforts in acquiring Wisconsin lands for the tribe. Materials by Williams in the scrapbook include his autobiography, 1803-1823, and several religious and historical essays, some concerning Rev. John Williams of Deerfield. Additional Williams family items include sermons, 1758-1794, and drafts of letters on religious topics written by Eleazer Williams from Mansfield, Conn., and Longmeadow, Mass., during the Second Great Awakening. There are memorials to the U.S. government and other documents concerning Oneida and Menominee lands in New York and Wisconsin. Among the Indian language materials are a religious piece, music, and an alphabet. There is also an engraving of Hobart, a pamphlet of Sabbath songs (1820), and a newspaper clipping re Williams' claim to be the French Dauphin.
