Abstract:

The records consist of John Nicholson's private papers which were seized by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania around 1800 in order to prosecute its claims against his estate and unravel the many difficult title conflicts involving his vast land holdings.

The Hagley Museum and Library's holdings cover only two of the several series of Nicholson's papers, the general correspondence (21 reels - Accession 1026) and the individual business accounts (6 reels - Accession 1739).

The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by correspondent and covers the whole range of Nicholson's activities. It also includes two small series of letters of his business partners, William Moulder, Jr. (1794-1800), and T. B. Freeman (1794-1799).

The business accounts include the books for Nicholson's bank accounts and those for the newspaper with which he tried to support himself in prison. Among the major enterprises represented are the Asylum Company, the Falls of Schuylkill button works and glass works (the last including payrolls), The Delaware & Schuylkill Canal Company, and the Washington, D.C., development.
