Life and Letters of Samuel Holden Parsons free pdf Excerpt from Life and Letters of Samuel Holden Parsons: Major General in the Continental Army and Chief Judge of the Northwestern Territory 1737 1789 A considerable part of the correspondence of General Parsons during and before the Revolutionary War and while in the Northwestern Territory, together with valuable official papers, was lost by the burning of the building in Middletown in which they were stored. A grandson and namesake of the General, noted as an antiquarian, genealogist and historian, procured duplicates of the lost papers, so far as he was able, intending to publish a biography of the General- but ill-health unfortunately forced him to abandon the undertaking for which he was unusually well equipped. The papers preserved by him, and the remnants of the General's letters - many of them having fallen into the hands of collectors - were inherited by a great-grandson of the General, Samuel H. Parsons of New York, who still has them in his possession. Among them are the General's Letter Book and the Order Book of his Adjutant, David Humphreys. Having access to this collection through the courtesy of Mr. Parsons, and to the Washington Papers by favor of the librarian of the State Department, and having for another purpose already collected much valuable material relating to the General's life and public services, the writer was led to take up the work laid down by the General's grandson. This volume is the outcome of the undertaking. The letters and documents of which this work is largely made up are most of them given in full, and, having been arranged chronologically, furnish, with the intermediate text, a complete and continuous story of the General's life.
