Among the family correspondence are several extraordinary groups of letters of Anne Sargent Gage; her uncle, Lucius Manlius Sargent (1786-1867); her adoptive aunt, Mary Moody Emerson (1774-1863); and her friend, Elizabeth Palmer Peabody (1804-1894), the Transcendentalist teacher, author, and educational reformer. The letters of Lucius Manlius Sargent illuminate the relationship of Anne Sargent Gage with her natural father, Daniel Sargent. In 1854, Mrs. Gage sought to learn more about her past and initiated a correspondence with her uncle, who encouraged her to seek financial assistance from Daniel Sargent's legatees. The folders containing Anne Sargent Gage's correspondence concern mainly her close relationship with her children and adoptive parents, but there are a few letters written by her to Lucius Manlius Sargent concerning Daniel Sargent
