This 9-volume set of digitized official diplomatic dispatches, letters, and other correspondence from British archival sources provides an in-depth look at relations between Great Britain and the newly formed American nation. The correspondence is arranged chronologically, with the first volume containing many references to “our Colonies and Plantations in North America” -- but by the end of volume 2 (1782) the official British correspondence switches to the “United States” in 1782.

In the early 1950s Rose Parsons and Dorothy Baumann founded the Committee of Correspondence to counteract Communism, promote American values abroad, and facilitate communication between women’s organizations around the world. Although the Committee was small, numbering a handful of prominent American women with leadership roles in other organizations, it had an extensive network of global “correspondents,” representatives of women’s organizations in other countries. The Committee’s publications, conference documents, and correspondence provide a rich view of an international network of women’s clubs that preceded the development of later women’s non-governmental organizations. Part of the Gale Archives Unbound series.
