Abstract:

Research materials and manuscripts collected by Wolfson for the book FRANCES WRIGHT, FREE INQUIRER, published in 1939, which Wolfson co-authored with A.J.G. (Alice Gray) Perkins.

Include correspondence (1909-1967) chiefly between Wolfson and Perkins, researchers, and various research institutions seeking biographical, geneological and publication data on Frances Wright; drafts (mss. typewritten) of the book chapters, index, and bibliography; biographical data on Wright consisting of mss. notes; excerpts and drafts. The excerpts (mss.) were copied chiefly by Perkins from letters of Wright and from the newspapers NEW HARMONY GAZETTE (1825-1828) and FREE INQUIRER (1828-1831). Wright's correspondents include Richard Wright, Mrs. Craig Millar, Charles Wilkes, James Milne, the Marquis de Lafayette, William Roscoe, B. Flower, Jeremy Bentham, Robert Dale Owen, Camilla Wright, Phiquepal D'Arusmont, and Marie Louise Duclos Fretageot. Also excerpts from the poetry of Wright, Wright's COMMONPLACE BOOK, Owen's diary, and the BOOK OF NASHOBA kept by James Richardson and Sylvie D'Arusmont's diary (child of Wright and Phiquepal D'Arusmont).

Includes the original ms. of Frances Wright's Last Will and Testament (1852); photocopies of Wright's correspondence with Robert Dale Owen and the Marquis de Lafayette; mss. maps of Nashoba Territory in West Tennessee; printed deeds of the lands of Nashoba (1827); ms. address by Wright (1827) on the nature and object of the institution at Nashoba and its founding principles; mss. deeds and agreements (1746-1834).

Also original mss. speeches and lectures of Wright: THE 6 EPOCHS OF HUMAN HISTORY (history of human civilization: its beginning in India, Egypt, Greece, and Rome and its later phases in medieval and modern Europe); VIEW OF THE POLITICAL HORIZON (1838); FREE PUBLIC SPEECH: THE CLARION OF POPULAR LIBERTY (1838); an account of Wright's ideal America (1839); a lecture on religion (n.d.); a lecture (no title) delivered at the Masonic Hall in New York (1839); 4 other untitled lectures; and 16 volumes of lectures.
