Abstract:

Includes Hampshire County, Massachusetts deeds (1778-1857) for the names Ballard, Bates, Beals, Carter, Ford, Fuller, Giddings, Hamlin, Kettell, Packard, Pratt, Spaulding, Stoel, and Taylor; notes, writs of execution, and other legal documents, 18th century Massachusetts; material relating to patents on voting machines (1905); farm account books (1877-1902), a stock register (1860s, 1870s), and other accounts of William G. Markham; a ledger (1897-1901) of the Rochester Fluorometer Company; trustees' minutes and accounts (1883-87) of the Chaffee-Reece Arms Company, Rochester; a letter book (1902-09) of S. W. Puffer; catalogues (1834, 1840), Franklin Academy, Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts; and pamphlets, including Washington's "Farewell Address." Also, correspondence of William G. Markham and Charles C. Puffer with business associates, colleagues, and friends, pertaining chiefly to sheep raising, breeding, transportation, and sale in New York, Vermont, Ohio, Texas, Australia, Japan, Argentina, and other places; activities of the National Wool Growers' Association, for which Markham served as secretary, the New York State American Merino Sheep Breeders' Association, of which Markham was president for a time, and the National Association of Wool Manufacturers; flock records of American Merinos (1870s) for Elm Place, Avon, Livingston County, New York; attitudes toward and action regarding the protective tariff on wool; price lists; bills; and wool reports.

Also, extensive correspondence, bills, and orders, concerning Markham's and Puffer's interest in the Pfaudler Vacuum Fermentation Company of Rochester, a firm which manufactured vacuum equipment for breweries; three letters (1879) from John Phelps Cowles, Jr., in China, containing a proposal regarding the building of a railroad from China to Tashkent and Peshawar, and an attack on the "painfully beggared" condition of the U.S. Consular Service in China; and personal correspondence. One roll of microfilm contains Markham correspondence with business associates concerning sheep, the wool tariff, and the Sea Island Company, manufacturers of turpentine in South Carolina, which later merged with the United States Cotton Company, headquartered in New York City, of which companies Markham was part owner and an officer; correspondence and miscellaneous papers of Charles Puffer, also an officer of the Sea Island Company, mostly about that company's affairs; a few letters from Puffer to Markham apparently about their mining interests; and miscellaneous letters and other papers not addressed to either Markham or Puffer. Also in the collection is a typescript copy of Markham's diary (1853-1907) with brief daily accounts of his activities and interests during school and college years and later, comments on his sheep business, the tariff, professional associations, politics, vacuum brewing machinery business, trips to the Far East and Europe, and personal affairs.

Fay, Colonel Ferriby, O. Gerry, Alfred Hay, William Hay, John L. Hayes, Thomas B. Husbands, G. F. Martin, O. R. Maynard, Edward G. Miner, Jr., P. J. Moss, B. L. Noe, Simon Newton Dexter North, J. D.
