Abstract:

The papers of Ira Allen span the years 1772-1809 and consist of a wide array of correspondence, land papers, and business receipts. Boxes 1-6 contain correspondence which document Allen's early activities in Vermont as well as his imprisonment in Europe from 1797-1800. Early letters find Allen actively surveying the boundaries of Vermont and include correspondence with James Whitelaw. Arriving in Europe in 1796, many of Allen's letters are addressed to the Duke of Portland proposing his Lake Champlain/St. Lawrence River canal. Later, while imprisoned in France, many of Allen's letters are addressed to French Minister of Police in quest of a passport home.

A good deal of family correspondence is contained in the collection including many letters from Levi Allen who frequently signs his letters "Bumper B" or "D'Alonzo." Letters to and from Jerusha and Nancy Allen (Levi's wife) are found as well. Folders 4-6 in box 3 contain the letters of Stephen Thorne who was responsible for chartering the "Olive Branch" in France and helped in the editing of Allen's "History of Vermont."

Boxes 7-9 contain many land and business papers as well as accounts of what arms were aboard the "Olive Branch". A number of lawsuits against Allen before and after his imprisonment are evidenced in the collection and one broadside dated 1792 exposes Allen as having many debts of which he is not able to pay (Box 8 Folder 4).

As a whole, the collection documents the rise and fall of Allen's political and personal fortunes from his entrance into Vermont to his return to the state after his European imprisonment.
