Abstract:

Ten letters, 1801-1807, written by William Tayler, a London businessman, to Samuel Relf, editor and owner of the National Gazette of Philadelphia; and ten letters, 1802-1803, written by William Poyntell, a Philadelphia merchant traveling in Europe, to his wife Ann. (William and Ann Poyntell were the parents of Relf's wife, Sarah Poyntell Relf; William Tayler was an uncle of William Poyntell.) The letters were, in fact, news dispatches intended for publication in the Gazette, reporting on current political, military, and naval developments in Europe, or on social and cultural events in England and on the Continent. Included also are handwritten biographical sketches (1972) by Samuel Relf Durand of Samuel and Sarah Relf's daughter Ann Relf Kemper and her husband Bishop Jackson Kemper, Sarah Poyntell Relf, Samuel Relf, Anne Wilcocks Poyntell, and William Poyntell; and photographic copies of portraits by Rembrandt Peale of Samuel Relf and William Poyntell.
