Abstract

Letters between Thomas Cotton in London and his brother Francis. The first one, written in 1835, was addressed to Evans & Co. surgical instrument makers in London for Thomas Cotton junior. Francis talks about goods shipped, surgical instruments sold, Samuel Cook, Theophilus Pollard married again, James Backhouse and George Washington Walker, cattle dying, thirty grazing on William Lyne's marsh and a good harvest. The fragment of a letter to Francis mentions a shipment on the 'Heather Bell' and a letter of 1856 from Thomas to Francis mentions George E. Broadbent emigrating to be near James and Fanny Dickinson, Samuel Cook and the death of Aunt 'Hill'. A letter from Thomas to Francis of 1865 mentions Thomas Ball retired doorkeeper of Stoke Newington Friends' Meeting, a nephew's business doing well and Anna Maria joining with him in sending greetings. Finally there is a Remembrance Card on the death of Thomas Cotton junior in 1876. DX 19/67
