Location: b Call No.: MS Am 1340.2-1340.7Repository: Houghton Library, Harvard Library, Harvard University Creator: Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth, 1807-1882, recipient.Title: Letters to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Date(s): 1761-1904, Date(s): 1820-1888 (bulk).Among the hands identified are those of Samuel Longfellow and Alice Mary Longfellow, who noted on them the fact that they had examined the contents.The correspondence for the year 1871 was not preserved, or more probably it was at some time inadvertently lost; the file-box for that year was empty when received and bore an appropriate notation.A list was made of the contents of these volumes, in order, as received at Harvard, and in it notes were made regarding stubs and other evidence, together with charts of the saw-cuts made by the binder.These cuts vary from one volume to another and may be used in dating and to identify material believed once to have belonged in the papers. The bindings themselves, now empty, are preserved in three boxes as b MS Am 1340.2 (6230). Letters from 1854 to 1882, chronologically arranged in a series of dust-proof file boxes.
S., including Thomas Carlyle, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Thomas Fields, George Washington Greene, Charles Appleton Longfellow, Charles Eliot Norton, Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Sumner, Alfred Tennyson, and Samuel Ward.These are arranged chronologically, and any identifications that can be supplied by readers will be welcomed.Images linked to this finding aid are intended for public access and educational use.Not only had most of the materials in Group 3 been extracted from them, but also over the course of time various other pieces had disappeared from the collections by various means, some escaping into the channels of the book trade, from which a few have been recovered by purchase or gift.There appears to be no way of determining what or how many pieces still are missing.
