Wright family papers by Wright family( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The papers comprise the correspondence of Thomas Goddard Wright and his son William Russell Wright to and from various members of the Wright family. The Wright family papers are divided into two series: the first are letters to and from Thomas Goddard Wright and were written from 1835 to 1851; the second series is correspondence to and from William Russell Wright and were written from 1857 to 1892. Letters to Thomas Goddard Wright begin in 1835, while he is attending Waterville College (now Colby College), Waterville, Maine, and Hamilton Theological Seminary, Hamilton, New York. The correspondence is chiefly from his father David Wright and his mother Abigail, who dispense advice, convey family news and events, and discuss religion. David Wright writes to his son Thomas of the Baptist missions to Martha's Vineyard and Virginia and his encounters with Native Americans. David Wright also discusses revivals, sermons, and various churches where he has preached as well as his pay per year. There are some letters from Thomas to his family during this time: they discuss his studies and family. Thomas receives correspondence from his siblings: his sister Abigail regarding her marriages and her children; his brother David, a merchant traveling through the South, chiefly in Atlanta, who discusses his business and hardships; and his youngest sister Martha, who writes of her lessons and the family. Thomas also receives correspondence from his brother William Carey--Frank Lloyd Wright's father, who lived with Thomas at various times--discussing his plans for the future, his study of medicine, his love for music, and teaching music. In one letter William Carey writes a small musical composition to relate to how he feels. The second series of correspondence begins in 1857 to the son of Thomas Goddard Wright and Julia A. Wright, William Russell Wright--addressed as Willie--while he is attending school. Willie receives correspondence from his grandfather David Wright, who discusses religion and the ministry. Willie's parents Thomas and Julia and his sister Minnie write frequently and keep him informed of the family, including updates regarding his aunts, uncles, and cousins. The correspondence with Willie follows his education at the University of Pennsylvania and Crozer Theological Seminary, as well as his European trip and education at the University of Erlangen in Bavaria from 1871 to 1873. In addition to correspondence from his parents and sister, William Russell receives correspondence from his cousins, the Pelton family, residing in Stuttgart. The papers also contain one sermon written by William Russell Wright and dated 1883 as well as some memorabilia from his trip to Europe
