Abstract:

The collections contains manuscripts and fragments of poems and stories, receipts, and letters including: "The Red-Winged Goose," "Old Cool," "The Death of Goody Nurse," "Home at Last," "Is it Better than never ..." "The Ballad of Christopher Aske," "Whatever Can Dry a Mourner's Tears ...," and "A Town Mouse and a Country Mouse."

Correspondence centers on Cooke's writing, and covers current work, reviews, and her publishers. Of special interest is an 1856 letter to Frederick Law Olmsted on writing for children that discusses "The Schoolfellow" magazine, Hawthorne, Thoreau, G.W. Curtis, Fanny Fern, Charles Anderson Dana, and Mrs. Kirkland. Her health, gardening, a move to Pittsfield, Ma., Harriet Spofford, William C. Price and "The Independent" are mentioned.

The collection also contains an autograph by Louisa May Alcott, a quotation by William McKendree Carleton, a letter by William Winter, a biographical sketch, and two portrait prints.

Correspondents include: Edward William Bok, Mary L. Booth, Henry Chandler Bowen, Peter Fenelon Collier, Dix and Edwards and Co., James Thomas Fields, John R. Howard, James Ripley Osgood and the editors of "Putnam's Monthly," "Traveller," and "Youth's Companion," and "The Atlantic Monthly."
