Papers of Epes Sargent, 1839-1880.

The papers contain an autograph draft and corrected manuscript of "The London Belle, Or Events of a Season," a manuscript poem, and a quotation. Most of the letters pertain to Sargent's work as editor of the Boston Daily Evening Transcript. He regrets the lack of an esprit de corps among editors, praises William A. Wheeler's new edition of Webster's Dictionary and Robert Dale Owen's book on slavery. Spiritualism is a frequent topic and he refers to John Tyndall's attack on it and his own defense. With these is a letter from Sir Thomas Noon Talfourd to Wiley, Long and Putnam discussing the potential for publishing Sargent's play "Velasco" in England and an engraving of Sargent.
