Abstract:

This collection consists of the papers of William Bacon Stevens. Except for two original letters to Stevens and his sketches (Folders 16-18), all of the papers are copies of primary source materials used by Stevens for writing his History of Georgia. Many copies are in his own hand; others are in the handwriting of clerks, but contain Stevens' notes. All of the extracts from the Proceedings of official bodies were later included in Colonial Records of Georgia and the Revolutionary Records of Georgia, both edited and compiled by A.D. Candler. The papers from 1782 (Folder 6) contain copies of letters from Generals Anthony Wayne, Nathaniel Greene, and Andrew Pickets. Some of these papers are also in the John Vallence Bevan papers, MS 71; these copies are noted in parentheses. Elijah Clark, Patrick Carr, and others, are often referred to in the proceedings. The articles in the three copy books are from contemporary news papers (No. 2) and proceedings of the Executive Council and Commons House of Assembly (Nos. 5-6).
