Bowdoin, James, 1752-1811. Papers, 1804-1806.

Papers, 1804-1806.

Copies of James Bowdoin's correspondence regarding his appointment and first years of duty as U.S. minister to Spain, and letters between other diplomats copied for his information. Correspondents include Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Secretary of War Henry Dearborn, and diplomats John Armstrong, Charles Pinckney, and George William Erving. Bowdoin's main concern was to stop privateering by French vessels against American merchants in the Caribbean. Political considerations prevented him from proceeding to Madrid, and most of his letters were written from London and Paris. Included are Bowdoin's financial accounts with the United States and several watercolor paintings of roses by an unknown hand.
