Subseries 1. Elizabeth and Christopher Magee, 1817-1908

Scope and Content Notes:

This correspondence is largely between Christopher and Louisa from the 1850s until Louisa's death in 1902. The letters discuss domestic matters, particularly the lives of their children, and are often warm and politely romantic.

Correspondence to Louisa from her father, Reverend John M. McLeod of New York, her brothers, Rutgers and Alexander, and her Aunt Sue often inquires about her children and health, and shares family news. Christopher received letters from Walter during his travels abroad. This subseries also includes Elizabeth and Christopher's 1859 marriage certificate, Christopher's memberships to the Bellefield Club and the National Geographic Society, an architectural drawing by J. W. Kerr of a summer house, and Louisa's estate papers. Ephemera and newspaper clippings relate to literature and poetry collected from print sources.
