Correspondence and documents, 1750-1802, mostly signed by George Washington, or pertaining to him or his estate.

There are also two notes exchanged between Martha Washington and Cornelia Tappen Clinton, George Clinton's wife, and a draft of a letter to Martha Washington from her niece, Mrs. Frances Bassett Washington. A poem by Simeon Ladd, dated 1799, mourns George Washington's death.
