Abstract:
The John Parker Hale correspondence is made up of 16 letters received by Hale, a New Hampshire lawyer and antislavery politician, between 1833 and 1856. The earliest 6 letters (March 19, 1833-August 13, 1840) concern his career as an attorney in Dover, New Hampshire, and his personal life. The final 10 letters (December 13, 1844-March 8, 1856) relate to Hale's outspoken opposition to slavery while serving in the United States Congress in the 1840s and 1850s. With the exception of Boston resident George W. F. Mellen, who wrote 4 letters between April and July 1848, each author contributed one letter.
