George Gibbs collection of Oliver Wolcott correspondence by George Gibbs( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Oliver Wolcott, Sr. (1726-1797) and Oliver Wolcott, Jr. (1760-1833) were American statesmen from Litchfield, Connecticut. George Gibbs (1815-1873), grandson of Oliver Wolcott, Jr., was a lawyer, historian, and ethnologist. The collection consists of correspondence of Oliver Wolcott, Sr. and Oliver Wolcott, Jr. as collected by George Gibbs during the writing of his work Memoirs of the Administrations of Washington and John Adams, edited from the papers of Oliver Wolcott, Secretary of the Treasury (New York, 1846), with letters about the work received by Gibbs after its publication. The documents, many written or signed by prominent Americans, comprise extra-illustrated items removed from Gibbs' personal copy of his two-volume work, bound in four parts. Most are unpublished. Wolcott correspondence, 1789-1803, concerns political as well as business and personal matters, largely reflecting the Treasury Department career of Oliver Wolcott, Jr. (1789-1800). Correspondence of George Gibbs, 1846 and 1848, consists of letters from prominent persons and friends thanking him for copies of his book, some adding further comments. An unrelated 1820 letter from General Andrew Jackson to Colonel Charles Gibson concerns Jackson's retirement from the Army
