Collection Scope and Content Note

The John Stevens Cabot Abbott autograph book contains notes and autographs from a number of Abbott's acquaintances. Most contributors included short, inspirational quotations or poetry. Of particular interest is a letter from Senator Charles Sumner, dated March 29, 1860, in which Sumner gave his opinion on one of Abbott's recent books. Many of the contributions came from Abbott's acquaintances in Brunswick, Maine, and include notes from several family members, including Abbott's brother Jacob. An anonymous party drew a pencil sketch of a man and woman, seen from behind, on the first page of the volume.
