Elizabeth Heard papers by Elizabeth Heard( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The papers of Elizabeth Heard consist primarily of correspondence, 1829-1864, sent to her by her four sons, John, Augustine, Jr., Albert Farley, and George Washington, Jr., and her brother-in-law, Augustine Heard, while they were living in China working for the family firm, Augustine Heard & Company. The bulk of the letters were written in the 1840s and 1850s. Some of the letters were written to both Elizabeth and her husband George Washington Heard, and one was addressed directly to George Washington Heard. The letters cast light on conditions in China during the Opium Wars, 1839-1842 and 1856-1860, social conditions in the country, the inner workings of an American trading firm operating abroad, and the family relationships that carried Heard & Co. to success. Many of the letters between Elizabeth and her sons discuss religion and spirituality, especially the ones from John. Letters written by Albert Farley while he attended Yale University discuss college social life and academic studies
