Smith, Thomas, 1745-1809.

Thomas Smith family papers, 1767-1841 (bulk 1793-1810). 68 items. Arranged in chronological order.

Thomas Smith (1745-1809), surveyor, lawyer, judge, and politician, of Pennsylvania.

The collection mainly consists of correspondence between members of the Thomas Smith family from 1767-1841, with the bulk between 1793-1810. The earliest letters (1767 and 1784) are from Smith to his mother Elizabeth Lawrence in Aberdeenshire, England. A group of 21 letters between Smith and his cousin Dr. Peter Smith of Aberdeenshire discuss the American lifestyle, medical schools and practices, and the judicial system. A group of letters to Judge Jasper Yeates and Governor Thomas Mifflin refer to legal decisions and court procedures. Other correspondents include Dr. Philip Physick and Smith's brother Charles of London, England.

The collection also contains two proclamations awarding judgeships to Smith, legal documents pertaining to the settlement of Smith's estate (1816), and documents relating to land sales or mortgaged property (1826 and 1841).
