Scope and Content

11. DESCRIPTION OF CONTENT AND SCOPE OF THE COLLECTION.

This description should cover: types of papers (e.g., correspondence, letters, diaries, documents, etc.); dates, subjects, and types of groups of materials that bulk largest; relationship of the material to specific phases of the career or activity of the principal named in item 2; full names, dates, and biographical identification of other persons and names of corporate bodies significant (by quality and quantity of material) to the collection, showing dates, types, and subject matter; geographical areas covered; specific events, topics, and historical periods with which the materials deal; and particular items of extraordinary interest.

Correspondence, receipted bills, land and estate papers of four generations of the Worthington family, residents of Baltimore Co., Md. The correspondence deals with land and financial transactions, health and family news, slavery and religious sentiments. The letters of Noah Worthington contain details of access to a private railway on his property. Receipted bills include furniture, household items, livestock, farm produce and labor, slaves, tobacco, timber, rents and mortgages. The papers of Noah Worthington, Rezin Worthington and Mary Worthington Fite contain inventories of slaves. A letter in Rezin Worthington's papers discusses the status of children of slaves and a letter in Noah Worthington's papers mentions compensation for slaves serving in the army during the Civil War. A large section of land papers contains deeds, mortgages, plats, etc. for property acquired in Baltimore County.

Of particular interest in the Thomas Worthington papers are a detailed account of the sale of his property (1821) and a memo book recording the details of his son Joshua's illness and death (1804). The memo book also contains a list of sermons heard from 1804-1805.

The miscellaneous correspondence includes information on land transactions, slaves, and the naturalization of Christian Mayer (1819). One letter gives a detailed description of Washington Place in New York City.
