Abstract:

Letters, financial papers, deeds, legal documents, bills and receipts, notes, invitations, maps and news clippings. Letters to Thornton regarding his service in the military, business of the Illinois Michigan canal, politics and his property and banking business include letters from Governor Joseph Duncan, John A. McClernand, Orlando Ficklin, Charles Lanphier, Edward B. Talcott, John Fry and Judge Anthony Thornton. Two letters Thornton wrote to his wife, one on returning from England discussing his activities there and another from Chicago where he discusses the amount of sickness and death among the canal workers. An 1836 letter from Henry Clay about a bull Thornton had bought. An 1866 letter from J.P. Vaughn from France discusses the arrangements for "hiding T." there during his "temporary banishment" also gives vivid description of his trip through Italy.

Family letters include many from relatives in Kentucky and Virginia including the Holloway, McClanahan, Wedderburn, Bayse and Clay families that discuss relatives, family news, travels, politics and business. Many letters to Ann and the Thornton daughters letters. Numerous deeds to property, promissory notes to Thornton, tax information on his bank and some legal documents. Notes for political speeches, probably written by Thornton. Copies of speeches by Thornton, Stephen Douglas and others. Newsclippings on politics.
