Series I. Business Correspondence, 1832-1848

Scope and Content Notes:

Sterling's outgoing correspondence is contained in a copy book and received letters are contained separately. Sterling maintained correspondence with congressmen in the 1840s regarding the annexation of Texas and the Tariff of 1842. Many of his other letters indicated enclosed payments for mortgages, leases, and purchases. Also included are letters from Lorenz & Sterling Co. to Sterling during his 1842 trip to Sandusky, Ohio. In a related letter, Sterling's partner, James Cuddy, argues against selling shares in the company.
