- The collection consists of the correspondence of Henry T. Osborne (1868-1896), a civil engineer and member of Weare Monthly Meeting, New Hampshire. The letters were sent to family and friends at home, most from Amesbury, Massachusetts, where he worked as a surveyor with John P. Titcomb (1891-1932). His family was involved in temperance and peace concerns. Henry's letters mention attending Quaker meetings, John Greenleaf Whittier, the religious views of P. T. Barnum, and visiting sites in Philadelphia in 1892, as well as his surveying projects.
