Gilson, Carpenter, and Coolidge family letters

Identifier: C-67
Overview Letters of three generations of the Coolidge family, poor folks with little education and less fluency with pen and ink. Business and legal documents and letters present a picture of marginal success as well as perennial failure. The earliest letters portray family life, cares and problems, including hazards of travel and weather in rural New England in the 19th century.
