Abstract:

Manuscripts include 2 pages from the first draft of "Uncle Tom's cabin," quotations, short poems, the story "What Dr. Hurshack said to Miss Emily," the poem "Only a year," and the essays "Our country neighbors" and "Country neighbors again."

Letters, ca. 1828-1889, from Mrs. Stowe show her great interest in religious questions and the abolitionist movement. In one letter she expresses outrage at the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. In another, she outlines the career of Mary Webb, a Negro woman she is assisting. There are many references to the evils of slavery. In later years, from her Florida residence; she preaches forgiveness of the South and a moderate Reconstruction policy.

Other topics mentioned include: Joel Parker's libel suit against her, her brother Henry Ward Beecher's opinions on various questions, and the exemplary life of the Duke of Sutherland.

Correspondence, 1846-1888, of James Lane Allen, Catherine Esther Beecher, James Parton, Calvin Ellis Stowe and Charles Edward Stowe concerns "Uncle Tom's cabin," equality of education for women, and Mrs. Stowe's article about Lord Byron.

The collection also contains engravings and photographs of Mr. and Mrs. Stowe.

Miscellaneous items include an autograph of Josiah Henson reputedly the model for Uncle Tom.

Correspondents include: the Duke of Argyll the Duchess of Argyll, Richard Bentley, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Thomas, Lord Denman, James Thomas Field, Sarah Pratt McLean Greene, Edward Everett Hale, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and the Duchess of Sutherland. The letter to Denman is a copy in another hand, possibly that of Stowe's daughter, Hattie.
