Abstract:

Correspondence and miscellaneous papers of the Spence and Lowell families, especially those relating to Keith Spence, Charles Lowell, and Mary Spence Lowell Putnam.

The largest portion of the collection is letters from Keith Spence to his wife. The letters written over the period from April, 1797 to September, 1809 describe Spence's business exploits and naval career, including service in the West Indies, cruises onboard of the Ganges, Philadelphia and the Constellation, his imprisonment in Tripoli, and his service as Navy agent in New Orleans. Some letters discuss their son Robert Traill Spence, also a naval officer.

Correspondence of Charles Lowell, chiefly letters addressed to him discussing theology, political and literary news, slavery and abolitionism, family news, etc. The correspondence covers the period between 1818 and 1861.

Correspondence of Mary Spence Lowell Putnam, chiefly letters addressed to her, many from her European friends. Correspondents include Lajos Kossuth, Terézia Walder Pulszky, Charles Sumner, James Russell Lowell, and others.-b Also included are a few letters, evidently collected by her for their autograph value.

Scattered correspondence and papers of the Whipple, Lowell, Traill, and Putnam families, including pieces by John Lowell (1704-1767); Joshua Brackett, (1735-1802), John Lowell, "the Old Judge" (1743-1803), William Whipple, and Joseph Whipple; a few letters dealing with the death of William Lowell Putnam at Ball's Bluff (1861), poems by Robert Traill Spence Lowell and Annie Fields, and miscellaneous family documents and genealogical data.

Also included is an address of the U.S. Postmaster General on the occasion of Kossuth stamp ceremony (Sept. 19, 1958)
