Container List

Series V. Contents of boxes with various labeling, 1850s-1921 (bulk, 1880s-1910)


The series includes the content of about 60 boxes that had a variety of miscellaneous labelings, ambiguous labels, misleading labels, incomplete labels, or no labels. Consequently, there is no particular arrangement to this series. The container list is presented simply as an inventory of the content of each N-YHS record carton. Where original boxes were retained, that is noted. As with the other series, content of boxes not retained were transfered to plastic enclosures; content from various boxes was not mixed together in any one plastic enclosure.

Scope and Contents

As with Series IV, this series holds content that represents all of the lawyers in the collection. Many of the files relate to the law office administration of Delafield and Longfellow, as well as personal papers of Bejamin Gould and of Longfellow, such as those concerning his property in Roque Bluffs, Maine. A notable document is the letterpress copybook of Dexter Hawkins for 1856-58. There is substantial documentation for a breach of contract matter: Samuel R. Smith v. Frank E. Anderson. Additional documents are found for matters seen in other series, including Trustees of the Sailors' Snug Harbor in the City of New York; Sarah May Le Brantz v. William G. Conklin; Wilhelm Pickhardt; securities matters; and more.
