Records, 1742-1919 (inclusive) [microform].

Records, 1829-1919, of the textile firm, with earlier records of enterprises of the Peace, Hazard, and other families. General accounting and production records, orders, sales, and correspondence, much of it with the Peace Dale firm's selling agents: S.B. and Buffum (1854), Jenkins and Huntington (1860), Fairbanks and Martin (1871), and Martin and Buffum (1885). Preceding this period, there are records of many other activities. The earliest is a daybook for 1742-1744 of the Trenton Mills, one of the flour mills owned by Joseph Pease. Other early records are a cash book, 1785-1788, of Isaac Pease; a daybook, 1761-1781, of S. Neyle; accounts, 1785-1791, of Abraham Newton, postmaster, Charleston, S.C. Accounts of the Hazard family in Charleston include those of Rowland Hazard, 1789-1790; Hazard, Robinson and Company; and Hazard and Ayrault. The family owned plantations on the Santee River, where sheep were raised, flour was prepared, and the usual farming operations carried on. From 1817 to 1850 there are accounts of Rowland Hazard's sons, Isaac P., Thomas R., Rowland G., and Joseph P. Isaac and Rowland acted together as partners, 1820-1829, carrying on a cotton mill in South Kingston and a general store in Providence, R.I. Many investment interests of the Hazard family are represented, including the Providence and Stonington and the Narragansett Pier Railroads, and the Wisconsin Central Railroad. Other letters, 1869-1886, are from Herbert Spencer concerning railroad investments, and papers on the Credit Mobilier, 1876 and later.
