Abstract:

Correspondence, financial, and legal papers briefly document four generations of the Harris family. A 1795 letter from John Harris to Elizabeth Harris provides a glimpse of late-18th century farming in America. Eight letters to John B. Harris include correspondence from his grandfather, Lewis Birdsall, and his brother, DeWitt Clinton Harris. A letter from Leland J. Cox records Cox's disillusionment with women. Twelve financial documents from 1836 to 1867 include receipts, merchandise orders, a Sabrina City Company Stock Certificate, and a bill of sale for a slave, illuminating the family's business dealings in Texas. Legal documents consist of an 1851 affidavit in which David Harris certifies his knowledge of the business operations of the A. Briscoe & Co. store during the Texas Revolution, and an 1875 lawsuit between Theodore Keller & Co. and John Goodrich Harris.
