Scope and Contents note

Ranging from his earliest mercantile activities to his last days in debtors' prison, these letters to and from Duer contain a wealth of information pertaining to his financial career. They include, among other topics, descriptions of the work being done at Fort Miller and the Poughkeepsie distillery, Duer's contracts to supply military troops, and land and stock speculation including letters regarding the Scioto company. The papers also include a few letters dealing with Duer's work in public service. There is also a family tree of the English Duers compiled in 1895.
