Letterbooks, 1788-1853 [microform].

The records consist of a microfilm of four volumes of letterbooks containing Cope's outbound correspondence from December 1788 to May 1853. The quantity of letters decreases markedly after 1835, as Cope relinquishes most of the details of business to his sons. Cope kept no diary between 1820 and 1843, and the letters are the primary source on his life and career during this period.
