Ellsworth family papers( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Letters written to Abigail (Nabby) Ellsworth by her husband Oliver Ellsworth while he was serving in the Continental Congress, the Constitutional Convention, the United States Senate and as commissioner to France. Most of the letters contain questions about his children and statements about missing his family, but they do include occasional political news, as when the British set their American prisoners free in April 1783. Also includes letters written to William Wolcott and Emily (Webster) Ellsworth, primarily by Emily's father, the lexicographer Noah Webster, and by her brother William G. Webster. Among Noah Webster's papers are certificates of deposit or registration at the federal and state level for a number of his books, and contracts awarding publishing rights to certain titles. His papers also include documents relating to the settlement of his estate. Seemingly unrelated are a series of letters acquired with the collection written by J.I. Emmegabback of the White Earth Band of Chippewa Indians to Mrs. Charles Prindle in 1890

Noah Webster collection by Noah Webster( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Primarily correspondence to Noah Webster, noted lexicographer, from various publishers including Nathaniel D. Appleton, Ephraim Morgan, B.B. Mussey, E.P. Walton & Sons, N.&J. White, G.&C. Merriam, and E.&L. Merriam. The topic is the publication and sale of Webster's dictionary. There are a few letters from Webster to Samuel M. Hopkins, William S. Shaw, Elihu Burritt, Benjamin Silliman, and his daughter Emily Ellsworth. After Webster's death, William W. Ellsworth served as executor and the correspondence was between him and various publishers as well as with William G. and Rebecca Webster. These letters document the legal issues regarding the copyright of Webster's dictionary. Significant in the collection is a draft of a page from his etymology research covering the words Actual to Acuru. Also of interest is an account book of the sale of his dictionary in 1839. The collection also contains some legal and financial documents. Seemingly unrelated are deeds and title search documents of Pinckney Ellsworth. He was the son of William Ellsworth, Webster's executor, which may explain their presence. These documents date from 1851-1894
