Collection Description

This microfilm edition of the Harrison Gray Otis papers, 1660-1870, contains the business, political, and personal correspondence of Harrison Gray Otis and, to a lesser extent, the papers of his father Samuel Allyne Otis, his grandfather James Otis, his uncle James Otis, Jr., his half-sister Harriet Otis, and other family members. The microfilm consists primarily of the manuscript collection of Harrison Gray Otis papers (Ms. N-617), but also includes, in Series II, the Harrison Gray Otis papers II (Ms. N-618).

Personal papers include the correspondence of Harrison Gray Otis with his wife Sally Foster Otis and their children, particularly Sophia H. Otis, describing both private matters and his public activities as a congressman and senator. Among the business papers are receipts, deeds, accounts, and correspondence documenting Harrison Gray Otis's speculation in undeveloped lands, particularly in Maine and western Massachusetts. Political papers include correspondence with John Adams, Mathew Carey, Lewis Cass, Henry Clay, Josiah Quincy, Theodore Sedgwick, Daniel Webster, and others on such topics as the Embargo of 1807, the Hartford Convention, slavery, Massachusetts state politics, and the Bank of the United States.

Bound volumes include a Harrison Gray Otis letterbook, 1788-1807; three account books, 1810-1820, 1814-1817, 1817-1819; and an 1806 diary of a tour in Canada. The collection also contains two diaries of Harriet Otis describing her life in Washington, D.C., and Boston, 1811-1814, and a trip to Vermont, 1817; and an unidentified diary of an 1840 trip to England and France.
