Scope and Content Notes:

Dunning McNair's letters contain both personal and business correspondence.

He received repeated correspondence from James Herron, who corresponded from Pittsburgh, Kentucky, and St. Louis. Dunning also received letters from James Ross and William Wilkins. A 1793 letter from John Wilkins, Jr., details the ongoing problem of Indian attacks on settlers. Dunning McNair received regular correspondence from his brothers Alexander McNair, in Lexington, Kentucky, and David McNair at Walnut Creek Farms near Pittsburgh. The letters are arranged chronologically.
