Abstract:

The majority of letters in the collection were received by Sarah Blake Sturgis Shaw and her daughter, Josephine Shaw Lowell. Many of the letters received by Sarah are condolences for the death of her son, Robert in 1863. A few letters to Sarah, concerning the abolitionist movement, also reflect the political situation at that time. Letters received by Josephine from Theodore Roosevelt, Rutherford B. Hayes, and Grover Cleveland all reflect Lowell's participation in the anti-Imperialist movement and its effect on the Philippines. Other letters in the collection include: from Oliver Wendell Holmes to Sarah regarding song lyrics; two letters from sculptor Augustus St. Gaudens regarding the Boston monument to Robert Gould Shaw; one personal letter from William James to Josephine; and two personal letters from Henry James to Josephine and her daughter, Lotta. Other correspondents and recipients include: Charles Russell Lowell (Josephine's husband) to Charles Sumner; Charles Russell Lowell to General Francis C. Barlow (Charles' brother-in-law, married to Ellen Shaw); Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar (Attorney General under Grant) to Francis C. Barlow; Grover Cleveland, Henry James and Woodrow Wilson to Ellen Barlow; W. Somerset Maughan to R.S. Barlow (Francis and Ellen's son). A carte de visite of Grover Cleveland, signed and the passport of Francis C. Barlow are also included.
