Miscellaneous papers [manuscript], 1798-1923 (bulk 1903-1923).

The collection consists of a letter from Richard Bland Lee to Edmund Jennings Lee; five letters from Jean Jules Jusserand to Frederic A. Delano; and a pamphlet, "Patronage National des Blesses." The Lee letter, 1798 December 13, concerns apparent confusion over the sale and expected emancipation of a slave, Caroline, and also refers to Edmund Lee's order for a riding horse. The Jusserand-Delano correspondence, 1903-1923, chiefly concerns a commemorative celebration for the late Lord James Bryce, for which Jusserand sent a testimonial letter (included).
