The papers consist of several letters and two journals of Henry Ellsworth's travels to New Connecticut (1811) and to the West (1832) after his appointment as Commissioner to the Indians. In this capacity, he was to superintend the removal of Indian tribes to the south and west of Arkansas, and his journal of 1832 describes the life of the Indians in eastern Oklahoma. There is also one letter from Henry Leavitt Ellsworth to his son, Henry William Ellsworth, 27 July 1834.
The largest part of the papers is made up of letters addressed to William D. Ely by young friends from 1837-1847, in which several of the men discuss their careers. Also in the papers are a number of letters (1834-1838) written by Anne Crawford Allen (later his wife) to various members of her family about a visit to Georgia and her view of slavery.
Chiefly typescripts of both the English and German versions of Otis H. Fisk's (1870-1944) book on the government and legal system of the United States, published in German as Kunde über Amerika (1944). Also in the papers are notes on the constitutions of the states of New York and Oklahoma and various diplomas and certificates.
The collection primarily consists of professional correspondence, deeds, land surveys, financial ledgers, a patent letter, receipts, promissory notes, proxy agreements, quit claims, and other materials that document the legal activities of Jesse Gilbert (1797) and other individuals who were possibly employed by the same New Haven law firm. The collection also contains a small amount of personal and family correspondence discussing family news and events.
Correspondence, notes, drafts, clippings of cases from court reporters, all relating to Hazard's work as principal writer of Restatement of the Law: Second Judgements (St. Paul, American Law Institute Publishers, 1982).
Correspondence and financial and legal papers relating to Samuel Johnson Hitchcock's education at Yale College, teaching at Fairfield Academy, legal practice with Seth P. Staples, and legal instruction at his and Staples' private law school which was incorporated into the Yale Law School.
The Alfred Eggleston Holcomb Papers include correspondence, writings, and printed matter related to tax reform. Principal correspondents are Charles J. Bullock and Edwin R. A. Seligman, who write about their work as officers of the National Tax Association. The writing and printed matter are also concerned with questions of taxation, particularly the single tax.
Correspondence, poems, orations and other writings, and miscellaneous legal papers that relate to Charles Ives and his immediate family. Some of his poems appear in Chips from the Workshop (1843). The orations and addresses concern political activities and also include notes and fragments of Isles of Summer, (1880).
