Scope & Content A collection of letters addressed to Hugh Bolton Jones, father of a Maryland landscape painter who bore the same name. The most frequent correspondents are his wife Laura, his daughter Louise, and his son also named Hugh Bolton Jones. There are also several letters from Jones's business acquaintances. Because both father and son shared a name it is unclear at times who is being addressed, but the majority of the letters were intended for the senior Hugh Bolton Jones. Includes letters with envelopes and some envelopes without accompanying letters.
Language English (eng)
