Abstract:

The collection consists chiefly of Cocke's correspondence with family and friends. In letters home he describes life at school in Norfolk, at William and Mary and at Yale where he studied mineralogy with Benjamin Silliman. He describes a canal surveying trip in Virginia with Claudius Crozet and a tour of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania to study the canal system. John Hartwell Cocke, Louisiana Barraud Cocke Faulcon and Louisa Maxwell Holmes Cocke write about the family, Bremo, and a trip to the western Virginia springs. There are frequent allusions to Cocke, Jr.'s epilepsy.

The papers also contain some religious notes by Cocke, Sr., and a copy of a letter of introduction, 1841, for Arthur Lee Brent to Thomas Walker Gilmer, Cocke's ideas for an agriculture school, a copy of Brent's resignation as resident physician at Philadelphia hospital, bills & receipts of Brent and Cocke, Sr., regarding the running of Bremo, and lists of freedmen, their work time, and wages in 1865.
