Found in 1 Record:

Thomas Davidson collection of 18th-century letters

Call Number: MS 37

The collection consists of 112 unbound letters on law, politics, daily life, estate management, etc. assembled by Thomas Davidson. Thomas Davidson (active 1786-1820), Newcastle-on-Tyne lawyer, and Clerk of the Peace for Northumberland, appears to have made a collection of letters by public figures and pasted them into an album, often with biographical annotations. The present collection consists of a number of these letters detached from the album, apparently with a few additions.

Dates: 1709-1849 and undated (bulk 1780-1800)
