Abstract:

Papers and correspondence, 1779-1880. Pintard's correspondence, 1780-1840, deals with such matters as his business activities, his financial difficulties and bankruptcy in the 1790s, the election of 1812, politics throughout the period, family matters, death or illness of friends, and his interest in various academic, cultural, philanthropic, and religious organizations. Some of his more frequent correspondents were John Wakefield Francis, Walter Livingston, De Witt Clinton, James Henry Clinton (serving aboard U.S.S. Constellation), Dr. Richard Davidson of New Orleans and other members of the Davidson family, Samuel Bayard of Princeton (N.J.), Fitch Hall of Boston, Elias Boudinot, Samuel Farmar Jarvis, and Lewis Pintard. There is also a large group of letters to his daughter, Eliza Noel Pintard (Mrs. Richard Davidson), of Pinckneyville, Mississippi Territory, and New Orleans, 1816-1833. The collection contains a diary of New York weather kept in 1779, and nine other diaries kept at various times between 1783 and 1807, including a diary of his reading while in debtors' prison. Some of the other material relates to Pintard's own interests, some to the affairs of various organizations in which he was active. It includes two commonplace books; an analysis of Blackstone's Commentaries, written by Pintard in 1799; reminiscences of his early life, probably either dictated to his daughter Louise Servoss or copied by her; notes on the Mississippi River and New Orleans, dated 1801; a manuscript article on the trade of New Orleans; a scrapbook of clippings, manuscripts and a broadside about the Erie Canal celebration in 1823; and miscellaneous papers. The material related to organizations includes indexes to volumes 10, 14 and 15 of the manuscript minutes of the Common Council of the City of New York (1790-1793, 1803-1804, and 1804-1806); papers pertaining to the financial affairs of the New-York Historical Society, ca. 1809-1828, and corrrespondence and papers about the Jacob Serred legacy to the General Theological Seminary, including Pintard's account of his involvement in the rise and progress of the seminary. There is also a large group of papers related to Pintard's son in law, Thomas L. Servoss, and his family, much of it correspondence, 1850-1880, about the family's claim under the French spoliation claims.
