Rufus Bunnell papers by Rufus Bunnell( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
By the time William and James were of college age, Rufus Bunnell wrote to them about more pressing matters and including issues in his own life, and often voiced personal frustration with his business endeavors. By 1824, when James had enrolled at Yale College, Bunnell expressed anxiety and stated that "numerous [are] my disappointments and vexations, resulting from improper and injudicious management." He had little trust in his business agents or associates and claimed "it brings home to me the truth of the maxim `if you want your business done [and] well done, you must [do it] yourself.'" It is uncertain what his business pursuits were; what is known is that Bunnell had trouble in establishing or maintaining his business endeavors in Charleston. On 19 February 1824 he wrote, "I have had great ... trouble in organizing and arranging a one-year term of business here." Rufus' letters were usually written from New York, N.Y., and Charleston, S.C. His place of permanent residence may have been the former; however, he attempted for several years to generate business in South Carolina
