Series I. "Notes," text by Tate, 1923-1930

Scope and Content Notes:

The first series in this bound manuscript volume consists of narratives written by Tate concerning the history and description of the Harmony Society and transcriptions of early documents related to the Harmonists. Tate was known to have given community presentations on the subject of the Harmonists and it is likely that the basis of his texts may have been derived from his previous presentations. The transcribed documents printed in the volume include a circular concerning a tariff bill in 1832, a letter from Pittsburgh Mayor John M. Snowden in 1826, a letter from Congressmen Henry Clay of Lexington, Kentucky, in 1829, and a letter from William Croghan offering to sell eight paintings to the Harmonists in 1831.
