Series XI. Drafts, 1799, 1852, undated

Scope and Contents note

Drafts for Samuel Ludlow Frey's, The Story of Our River and  The Colonel and the Major. Also a draft of an article probably written by Frey, "Were They Mound Builders," and a brief, early essay of his (possibly for school) entitled "Old, times." Drafts of writings in the hand of John Frey discuss politics, slavery, homeopathy, and insurance. This series also includes what appear to be drafts of addresses, in the hand of John Frey. Topics include temperance, farming and agriculture, slavery, religion, politics, and education. As one document names Frey as recorder for an unnamed society, these addresses are not necessarily his own work. In addition, three drafts of works by unidentified authors are located in this series.
