The collection consists of over 3000 miscellaneous items of primarily American literary, historical, and political figures, including business and personal letters, cards, manuscripts, drawings, photographs, and official documents (deeds, wills, bonds, etc.).

Hayes, Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, William Howard Taft, and Martin Van Buren. The collection also contains original documents of Alexander Graham Bell, Andrew Carnegie, Winston Churchill, Charles Darwin, Jefferson Davis, Frederick Douglass, Sigmund Freud, Langston Hughes, Victor Hugo, Herman Melville, J. P. Morgan, Samuel Morse, Benito Mussolini, Friedrich Nietzsche, George Orwell, Thomas Paine, Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Revere, J. D. Salinger, Jean-Paul Satre, William Tecumseh Sherman, Upton Sinclair, Henry Morton Stanley, John Steinbeck, Bram Stoker, Alexis de Toqueville, Jules Verne, Booker T. Washington, E. B. White, and Virginia Woolf, to name only a few of the most famous.

Arranged alphabetically by the name of the creator, with unattributed materials at the end.

The collection is open and will continue to grow.

Parts of this collection are available on microfilm, cataloged separately as RCPXM-7497696.

The collection has resulted from miscellaneous purchases and gifts of numerous donors over the years.

This collection was processed by Lisa Yankowitz during the summer and fall of 2010 . The finding aid was written by Lisa Yankowitz in January 2011 and is regularly updated with new acquisitions by Faith Charlton, Kelly Bolding, and Armando Suárez.

Alden, J. C., Pages from American Revolutionary War Orderly Books, 1775 December 15-1776 January 12. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

Consists of fourteen handwritten pages taken from one or possibly more orderly books kept by aides-de-camp to Generals Artemus Ward and George Washington during the early stages of the American Revolutionary War and the Siege of Boston. The orders contained on these leaves, written during the siege, record a variety of official internal actions taken by the nascent Continental Army and include regimental orders, general orders, notifications of troop movements, records of guard duty, as well as matters relating to discipline, training, supplies, and food. Most notably, they refer to the potential participation of free African American volunteers in military roles. Names mentioned in the orderly book pages include Colonel Read, Colonel Danielson, Major Mitchel, Colonel Alden, Lieutenant Goodwin, Jedediah Huntington, Captain Ingersoll, Major Barnes, General Horatio Gates, and numerous others, some of whom are listed as participants in courts martial proceedings. Regarding authorship, the final page is signed by J. C. (or possibly I. C.) Alden, which could refer to either Ichabod Alden or a fellow member of the Massachusetts Alden family, such as a John or Joseph C. Alden. It is also possible that another person authored some of the leaves since there are at least two different handwriting styles.

Austin, William Henry, 1840-1914. Austin, William Henry, Letter to Ada Caroline Austin Martin, 1864 February 22. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

Consists of a four-page letter from William Henry Austin (1840-1914), a sergeant in the 109th New York Infantry during the American Civil War, to his sister, Ada Caroline Austin Martin (1834-1923) of Harpursville, Broome County, New York. Austin writes from Camp Briggs in Alexandria, Virginia, and describes an encounter with Lyons (Sarah Rosetta) Wakeman (1843-1864), a gender non-conforming person who is known as one of the few women to serve in the Union Army. However, Wakeman was enlisted in the 153rd New York Infantry and later buried under the name of Lyons Wakeman and often presented as a man. Austin and Wakeman were childhood friends whose families resided in neighboring villages, and thus Austin was one of the few soldiers who knew of Wakeman's enlistment story. Of his encounter with Wakeman, Austin writes, "She was looking fine. Sports an insipid moustache, highly colored, presents quite a soldier's appearance. There is something mighty queer about this arrangement. There is rottenness in Denmark somewhere (mum about this)." He also writes about other soldiers, his pay, and potential romantic interests back home.

Baty, T. (Thomas), 1869-1954. Baty, T. (Thomas), 1869-1954, Letter to Alfred Duff Cooper Regarding Sino-Japanese Relations, 1937 October 1. 1 box.
Scope and Contents

Consists of a five-page manuscript letter from Thomas Baty in Toyko, Japan, regarding relations between China and Japan and the Second Sino-Japanese War. The letter is addressed to "my dear Cooper," most likely referring to British Conservative Party politician Alfred Duff Cooper, 1st Viscount Norwich, who was then First Lord of the Admiralty. In the letter, Baty presents a detailed legal defense of the Japanese position concerning their actions leading up to and during the Second Sino-Japanese War, noting the attacks by the Chinese during the Marco Polo Bridge Incident and the Battle of Shanghai. Of note is Baty's remark, made three months prior to the Nanking Massacre, that Nanking did not yet consider themselves to be at war with Japan. Later in the letter, Baty expresses support for Francisco Franco's dictatorship over Spain and disdain for Bolshevism. The final page of the letter appears to be missing.

Bell, Lemuel G.. Bell, Lemuel G., Account Book Documenting Thompsontown, Virginia, 1846-1861. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

Consists of an account book kept by Lemuel G. Bell, a merchant based in Richmond County, Virginia, who sold provisions to customers in nearby areas, many of whom were African Americans living in what appears to be a Black community called Thompsontown on the Northern Neck of Virginia in the mid-19th century.

Many people living in this community were likely formerly enslaved by or descended from the 509 people enslaved by Robert Carter III on the Nomini Hall plantation in Westmoreland County, Virginia. In 1791, Carter filed a deed gradually manumitting around 500 people over a period of twenty years, including eleven people with the surname Thompson, as well as others with surnames Allen, Cary/Carey, Dixon, Gaskins, Harris, Harrison, Henry, Johnson/Johnston, Jones, Mitchell, Newman, Reid, and Robinson, among others. This account book mentions several customers with the surname Thompson, including Moses, Mason, Harry, Haney, Betsy, and Cato Thompson, as well as others with surnames Newman, Harris, Mitchell, and Jones.

Research suggests that Thompsontown existed in an area of Warsaw, Virginia, between Thompsontown Road and Bell Farm Lane, in close proximity to locations matching other names mentioned in the account book, such as Withers Lane (Joseph Weathers), Lyells Drive (Samuel Lyells), and Haynesville (Haynes Store). According to the 1850 census, a 60-year-old Black farmer named Henry Thompson owned 275 acres of land in Richmond County, which could also be the source of the name Thompsontown.

The account book spans about 160 pages, and entries document the purchase of corn, lumber, guano, home goods, and other provisions, as well as payment of rent by boarders and tenant farmers. Some customers barter for supplies by cutting wood. Some other names documented include Thomas Burwell, James and Robert Adams, Jarret Ball, James Gallagher, Fleet Pridham, Robert G. Bluford, William D. Bell, Robert Jones, James Shackelford, William Sisson, and Richard and John Coatney.

Scope and Contents

Manuscript on paper in Nahautl and Spanish. Tehuacán, 1624. Bookseller's description: "Soon after the completion of the conquest of Mexico, the native populations learned the importance of Spanish law and quickly learned to use it to their advantage as much as the system would allow. In this legal proceeding the Nahuatl-speaking citizens of the towns of Coculco and Tempatetetzintla seek redress via the courts for actions of a Spanish neighbor named Antonio de Padilla who lived in the neighboring area of Tehucán in Central Mexico. The man from whom Padilla purchased his land had settled a case out of court with the indigenous townspeople herein for the sum of 100 pesos and an agreement to cede some of his land to them. Padilla, however, respected neither the [indigenous peoples] nor the legal process; he continued to plant both on the ceded lands and to plant on land that the [indigenous peoples] alleged was always theirs, while deforesting some other of their land and also denying them their longheld access to water, including use of an irrigation canal that had been created by the [indigenous peoples] themselves with great difficulty. In a region with little water, water rights were extremely important. Three officials from the affected towns brought this lawsuit against Padilla in 1624. The testimony gathered by the plaintiffs, in both Spanish and Nahuatl, is presented in 18 documents (most in Spanish translation via a bilingual court official), and they convinced the contador of Tehuacán, who served as judge, to rule in favor of the [indigenous peoples]."

Major General John Sullivan (1740-1795) led the campaign with Clinton as second in command. In the letter, Clinton addresses leaders who had not aligned themselves with the British, attempting to influence their participation and suggesting that they stay on the sidelines or offer minimal assistance. He mentions the Oneida, Tuscarora, and Onandaga nations specifically, but also references the Six Nations, a British term for the Haudenosaunee, which the French referred to as the Iroquois and which also included the Mohawk, Cayuga, and Seneca nations.

Coale, William, -1842. Coale, Dr. William, Ledger of Medical Appointments in Libertytown, Maryland, 1827-1840. 1 box.
Scope and Contents

Consists of a 450-page ledger kept by Dr. William Coale, a physician based in Libertytown, Maryland, who treated white residents and free and enslaved African Americans living in Libertytown and in the nearby Black community of Oldfield. Entries document Coale's work delivering babies, providing vaccinations, treating wounds and broken bones, and prescribing medicines. As the name of Coale's father, Richard Coale, appears multiple times in the ledger, it is possible that he was in a business partnership with his son and provided some of the treatment described. Many people in these communities were also Catholic.

White patients and free African American patients who received treatment from Coale are listed under their own names. Those described as "coloured men" include James Dorsey, Thomas Richardson, Richard Bowie, and Valentine Davis. The ledger also documents Coale's provision of medical treatment to enslaved people, who are listed under the names of their enslavers, including Thomas Warfield, Benjamin Buckingham, Dennis D. Howard (who enslaved Devan/Vanzey Lawson, Daniel Lawson, Samuel Lawsen, Ephraim Lawsen, Wesley Carter, Amy Anthony, Lydia Carter, Hetty Carter, and Rachel Carter), Christopher Ownings (who enslaved Thomas Edmond and eleven people with the surname Smith), Richard Broche (who enslaved Deborah), Thomas Sollers (who enslaved Solomon Costly and Tamour), and Thomas Hammond (who enslaved Isaac Bryan, Boss Hammond, Lewis Jackson, Jeremiah Davis, Dennis C. Linthicum, and Allen Fisher). Others mentioned include Basil Rait, John Penn, and Nancy Williams. There are also some loose receipts and notes with calculations inserted into the ledger.

The estate remained within the Hamilton family until it was demolished in 1875.

Douglass, Frederick, 1818-1895, Letter to William B. Sprague, 1861 May 1. 1 box.
Scope and Contents

One signed autograph letter (2 pages) from Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) in Rochester, New York, to William Buell Sprague (1795-1876) two weeks after the start of the American Civil War. The letter regards Sprague's discourse in commemoration of the late Supreme Court Justice John McLean (1785-1861) delivered on April 7, 1861, in the Second Presbyterian Church, Albany, which had mentioned Douglass. In the letter, Douglass describes his own life story, as well as his prediction that the abolition of slavery would be an outcome of the Civil War, writing, "For once the cause of the country has become the cause of the slave, and the difficulty of separating the one from the other, is a ground of hope that in the almost certain triumph of the country, the cause of justice and freedom to the bondman will triumph."

Douglass, Frederick, 1818-1895, Letter to Frank B. Sanborn, 1885 April 15. 1 box.
Scope and Contents

One signed autograph letter (3 pages) from Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) in Washington, D.C., to Frank B. (Franklin Benjamin) Sanborn (1831-1917) regarding the events leading up to the 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, organized by abolitionist John Brown. In the letter, Douglass recounts meeting with Brown in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, shortly before the raid; Brown's unsuccessful attempts to convince Douglass to support him; and the likelihood that a "Mr. Smith," probably referring to Gerrit Smith (1797-1874), knew the details of Brown's plan prior to the raid.

Edgeworth, Maria, 1768-1849. Edgeworth, Maria, Fragment of Autograph Manuscript of 'Helen', circa 1833. 1 folder.
Scope and Contents

Consists of a fragment of the autograph manuscript, Helen, by Maria Edgeworth. Helen was Edgeworth's last novel, published in 1834 by Richard Bentley. The novel has been noted as being uncharacteristic of her fiction, but Edgeworth had written that this difference was deliberate.

The manuscript fragment consists of 18 lines with corrections, deletions, and other annotations, indicating its use as a working manuscript. "Maria Edgeworth scrap of Helen" is written in the margin. The section of text is from chapter seven in volume 2, featuring a conversation between Helen and Lady Cecilia. Comparison with the published version of the novel shows that a short passage was added to the text after this working manuscript was written.

A few businesses can be made out from billboards or painted signs, including Cremo and Henry George 5-cent Cigar. Though the image is unsigned, photographer John Wesley Elarton (1844-1919) was living in Aurora at the time this photograph was taken, and it was likely taken by him.

Ellery, William, 1727-1820. Ellery, William, 1727-1820, Draft of Editorial Regarding his Views on Slavery and the Consequences of Emancipation, circa 1817. 1 box.
Scope and Contents

Consists of a heavily revised, four-page manuscript draft of an editorial by William Ellery (1727-1820), signed "A Friend to Man." Although undated, the draft is probably dated about 1817 and was likely written in response to the foundation of the American Colonization Society in 1816. Ellery, who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a member of Congress from 1776 to 1786, came to favor the gradual emancipation of enslaved people. In the editorial, Ellery argues against a "sudden general emancipation" in the United States and the Caribbean, proposing that labor crises would ensue and have negative affects on both black and white Americans. Ellery also writes that he is not opposed to the resettlement of formerly enslaved African Americans in Africa, but expresses doubts about the economic viability of this plan. The draft ends with a discussion of old biblical justifications for slavery and a list of biblical quotations relating to bondage and the "curse of Canaan."
