Irving, Washington
Letterbook
Scope:
The Washington Irving Letterbook (1 box, 0.25 linear feet) consists of one bound letterbook containing handwritten copies of outgoing letters dated from 1842 to 1844 written by Irving (1783-1859) while he served as U.S. Minister to Spain (1842-1846). Although most of these letters were copied in the hand of Irving's secretary, a number of them were copied by Irving himself in his own hand. Irving's richly descriptive writing style shines through in these letters as he analyzes in impressive detail important events in Spanish political history. Addressed to both American and Spanish officials; including U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Webster, Spanish Minister of State Count Almodovar, U.S. Minister to Britain Edward Everett, Commodore Matthew C. Perry, and U.S. Consuls in Spain and beyond; these letters provide valuable documentation on U.S. diplomatic and economic relations with Spain in the early 1840s. Moreover, this collection adds to the primary source material available on this nineteenth century American literary giant.
