Abstract:

This is a collection of letters, letterbooks, account books, scrapbooks, etc., concerning the families of Robert Hare and Thomas Willing. The letters and other documents include early family material, as well as documents written by numerous family relations, and some obviously only collected by them.

The Willing family letters (1744-1863, ca. 460 items) are diverse, concerning family matters, business, society, comments on the Civil War, etc. There are numerous letters from Thomas Willing, many concerning his banking career, as President of the Bank of North America and later at the first Bank of the United States.

The Hare family letters (1781-1890, ca. 800 items) are more extensive and diverse, including much on travel in the U.S. and elsewhere. There is a letter from Robert Hare, Jr. conerning steam-engines, and letters from Horace Binney Hare concerning his education at Harvard, 1860; his trip to San Francisco and the West, 1862; and numerous letters while a soldier in the Civil War. There are many letters from Horace Binney to his daughter Esther, who was married to John Innes Clark Hare, concerning family travel and court cases. There are also letters from outside the family, such as those from Dorothea L. Dix.
