Series II. Burd Family Business Papers, 1774-1855

Scope and Content Notes:

The business papers of the Burd family feature receipts, legal documents, and correspondence of Edward and James Burd. Many of the letters are written from and to Philadelphia, and some are from other locations in eastern Pennsylvania including Lancaster and Carlisle. The materials also include some papers and correspondence of James Burd Hubley to Edward Burd and some of his legal documents. Within this portion of the collection, the majority of the documents are originals, however there are some hand-written drafts and copies mixed in as well which do not contain an official insignia or signature. Some documentation includes portions of letters in which both the composer and the addressee are unidentified, but one of the correspondents is presumably James Burd.
