Abstract:

This collection contains correspondence relating to French and English politics, business, and trade (ca. 1778-1782). There is also information on his immigration to America, Joseph Priestley, vaccines and innoculation (with Jefferson's comments on the same), Vaughan's business in Philadelphia, and the American Philosophical Society.

There is correspondence with Pierre, Eleuthére Irénée, and Victor Marie du Pont, 1801-1816 (photostats from Eleutherian Mills Historical Library); and with George W. Featherstonhaugh (photostats from Mrs. Duane Featherstonhaugh).

There are two commonplace books, one of 1783 (ca. 66 p.) with comments on Rush, Rittenhouse and his orrery, Priestley, Franklin, Washington, and Jefferson (B/V462.c); and another, entitled "J. Vaughan's Book," written in Latin and dated 17 May 1779 (47 p., 870/L43). There is also an inventory and other documents relating to his estate, 1841.

The collection includes verses written for Vaughan by William H. Furness, 1826, and verses and a song prepared for the Vaughan Club by Benjamin M. Hollinshead and William Norris, 1839 and 1841. There are 2 boxes of papers relating to Vaughan's administration of the estate of Samuel Merrick, a Philadelphia importer, 1796-1822.

There are also boxes containing the Madeira-Vaughan Collection (1768-1922), which includes miscellaneous letters of members of the Madeira family to or from, among others, Edward Everett Hale, Washington Irving, Harriet Martineau, Richard Peters, Agnes Repplier, Roger B. Taney, and Daniel Webster. There is also a journal of a voyage on the ship "Sampson", 1819; a letter of Jan Ingenhousz to Jonathan Williams, and many letters to Jacob Snider.
