Abstract:

This collection contains correspondence between Lesley and prominent scientists on scientific topics. In addition, there is correspondence to his wife with references to abolition, educational reform, organized charity, Unitarianism, etc.

Also included is a diary, 1874-1881 (4 v.), relating to the Geological Survey of Pennsylvania (1874-1896), with newspaper clippings, letters, extracts from publications, etc., of which the second volume is a "private" diary. There are also accounts of the Geological Survey of Pennsylvania (1874-1896) (4 v.).

Among many miscellaneous notebooks are Lesley's notes of a geological survey of the Pottsville District, 1851 (in the same volume is Benjamin Smith Lyman's Levels of survey near Llewellyn, 1862); his notes of a survey at Emigh's Gap; and Alexander McKinley's geological report book, 1839, for the Seven Mountains and Warrior's Ridge, Center County, Pennsylvania, with Lesley's final report, 1839-1940.

In addition, there are notebooks containing poems (1 v.), a dictionary of fossils found in Pennsylvania, and journals kept on a tour of France, Germany, and Switzerland, 1844-1845 (4 v.). There is also a survey by Benjamin Smith Lyman of Converse and Panolt Leases, Glace Bay, Cape Breton Island (1 v.); and miscellaneous notes on a wide variety of topics, many abstracted from printed works, on obelisks, the Zend-Avesta, European place names, Egyptian burial customs, lists of Hawaiian words, notes on Javanese and East Indian words and customs (7 v.).
