William H. Powell Correspondence
Description: There are only twelve letters in this file, virtually all of which are addressed to Powell from New York (City). The chief correspondents are John S. Hanna and A. W. Nicholson, individuals with whom he lived in the Asylum, and who like him, were either in the process of being apprenticed or had been apprenticed. All or virtually all have the integral address-leaf, and most are addressed to Powell in care of Mr. Byram. They are dated, 1843-1853.
