Abstract:

The collection contains sixteen letters, 1850-1852 (plus one extract of an 8 July 1851 letter), from Newton Spaulding Manross of Bristol, Connecticut, to his family while he studied and toured in Europe (mostly from Göttingen, Germany, where he earned his doctoral degree) with his friend William Smith Clark (future president of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst), plus an 1853 letter written aboard the Barque Yeman off the coast of Venezuela; 20 invoices for goods purchased in Germany, 1851-1852; a pencil drawing of a German village; a two-page formula written in German; two envelopes; three handwritten advertisements for Mr. Fr[iedrich] Tamnau's minerals in an envelope addressed to Manross in Berlin; and a printed card, 1 September 1852, filled in for Manross authorizing him to hunt in Göttingen (in German). The letters show his lively sense of humor as well as his serious side. He tells his family why they decided to stay in Göttingen to study with Professor Friedrich Wöhler, provides detailed descriptions of his finances, and writes about European industries and technologies including mine inspections.
