Series XIX. Bound volumes, 1774-1802, inclusive

Scope and Contents note

The two volumes of correspondence include letters received by Duer related mostly to supplying the American Army during the Revolution, the Scioto Land Company, and the settlement of Illinois. They are numbered in pencil from 1-138 (volume 1) and 139-257 (volume 2). The timber contracts pertain to agreements with the governments of Spain and France to supply timber for ship masts and spars. Silas Deane, James Wilson, and Mark Bird were also associated with this enterprise. The remainder of this volume appears to have been used for penmanship practice and casual use.

Volumes 1 and 2 are available on reel 3 of the microfilm.
