Abstract:

This correspondence from Colquhoun to Walker from 1793 to 1800 concerns Walker's role as land broker for Colquhoun and a Gov. Hornby. All letters were sent from London and refer to land investments in western New York. Colquhoun gave him the power of attorney in his business transactions with a "Col. Smith" (whose lack of integrity is mentioned in many letters), Robert Morris (1734-1806), and others. He also mentions many current events and how they might have affected relations between the United States and Great Britain: e.g., Indian uprisings and repeal of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce with France. Later letters mention the publication of Colquhoun's pamphlets. These letters, many of which are marked "duplicate" or "copy" are in chronological order.
