Abstract:

Papers primarily consisting of correspondence between family members of the Green family of Kentucky and the Ruggles family of New England. The letters give an excellent picture of the lives of people of good family but varying economic conditions; the attitudes of and toward women; health and medical conditions; manners and customs; and travel conditions by both land and water. Some significant information about slaves, weather conditions, religious views, dental problems, and attitudes toward dreams. Letters between Ellen Ruggles Green and her husband, Hector Green, are extremely affectionate for the period. Throughout there is some news and discussion of politics and current events, Cuba, Kanawha Salines, steamboats, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Boston, and Roxbury, Massachusetts, economic and mercantile conditions, education, and other matters pertaining to children. A letter written by Hector Green on the eve of the Civil War to his son, John Williams Green (later of the Orphan Brigade) clearly states the position of many Kentuckians on Abraham Lincoln and secession.
