Alternate Locations

The following two items were laid into the Webster journals (mounted to opposite sides of a single sheet of heavy paper). They do not appear to be directly tied to the Webster journals; a suggestion has been made that the Douglass item may have been obtained and/or kept as a souvenir. Both items are housed in the African American History Collection:

Douglass, Frederick ALS to J.C. Hathaway; Rochester, [New York], 1856 July 29 and

Redpath, James ALS to A. Leffingwell; Boston, [Massachusetts], 1863 August 19.
