Series IV. General Correspondence, 1730-1806

Scope and Content Notes:

General Correspondence refers to the letters and documents included within the Burd-Shippen Papers, which seemingly have little direct connection to either family, aside from geographic region. Some of the documentation makes reference to land deals, financial information, and social correspondence with distant relatives. These may represent some of Edward Shippen or Edward Burd's clients during their business or legal work.
