Abstract:

The papers contain correspondence, articles of agreement, deeds and indentures, surveyor's reports and plats, land grants, transcribed legal documents, and financial accounts pertaining to holdings in Kentucky, North and South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Washington City, Virginia, and Georgia.

Company organizers James Greenleaf, John Nicholson and Robert Morris are the principal correspondents. Many of the letters were written by Greenleaf in his efforts to straighten out affairs of the company when it was put in receivership.

The collection includes several manuscript maps of tracts of land including one for a complete block in Washington, and 19 deeds for land in South Carolina to Christopher Lewis and James White, 1791-1794, each with a map and seal attached and signed by Governor Moultrie.

Collection also contains stock sale ledgers (9 v.), 1795 March to September; legal documents (2v.), 1793-1844; and a blank stock book with preprinted forms, n.d.

Correspondents, including suceeding trustees in receivership, include John Ashley, John Breckinridge, George French, Robert James, John Nixon, Robert Orr, Henry Pratt, and Benjamin Tilman.
