On offer is a wonderful archive of twenty [20] original manuscript letters [stampless covers with various postal cancels] dating from 1836 to 1850 all written to the steel firm of Wm. Jessop & Sons in New York with various signatures from the firms of Fullerton & Raymond (Boston), Curtis & Hand (Philadelphia), Cornett & Nightingale (Providence), George Stead (Baltimore), Bailey & Mason (Providence), J. & S.

Historians and researchers of pre Civil War steel making and general commerce and industry will delight with all the letters concerning business dealings/orders with this early and prominent American steel company, with some letters having exceptional business content: [Boston, 1839] "... There was a great stir on State St. today in consequence of the unfavorable news from Philad. our capitalists have all been buying U. S. Bank postnotes and are very much alarmed. It is however generally supposed that the suspension of those banks will make money matters easier, tho' the suspension of specie payments is regretted, even to effect this object.-- I hope I shall not be obliged to purchase specie to pay my custom house bonds, tho I can easily procure it if necessary. I fear the news fr Liverpool will add only to the troubles in your city-- I hope you sustain no loss from any person in consequence of your late fire..." Expected folds, seal tears, but condition of letters is generally excellent. 8 x 9 ¾ inches.
