Series IV. Miscellaneous Items, 1857-1889

Scope and Content Notes:

The personal papers of H.M. Brackenridge are an assortment of documents including copies, presumably in his hand, of several literary works of popular authors (although one is dated after his death and may have been copied by another family member). The papers include obituary notices for H.M. Brackenridge and his daughter-in-law, Phillipine Brackenridge and guardianship papers for the children of Benjamin Morgan Brackenridge. This series also includes a clarinet that belonged to Brackenridge.

The order of these documents from the letter book has been noted through the inclusion of a letter book number (e.g. LB#01). See custodial history for more information.
