Abstract:

Letters of Robert Beverly (1740-1800) of "Blandfield" in Essex County, Va., to his father-in-law, Landon Carter of "Sabine Hall," Richmond County, Va. Subjects include family news, especially concerning Beverley's wife, Maria, daughter, Molly, and son, Billy. Also, wheat and tobacco crops and damages suffered by frost; tobacco market, Indian depredations on the western frontier, Beverley's views on the raising and education of children, the Stamp Act, and the repercussions of the Boston Tea Party. Beverley professes to be disinterested in practicing politics, yet expresses his views to his father-in-law, who disagrees with him on every point.
