Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of letters to Robert C. Wright, a merchant in Baltimore, Maryland. The majority of the letters are from Charles Fessenden, apparently Wright's agent in Boston. Fessenden discusses the general business climate, as well as the prices and availability of commodities. In addition, a letter from John M. Forbes gives a detailed description of the China Trade (1844).
