Papers of Samuel Abbot (1732-1812), Boston merchant, who set up in the city in 1754, and went back to his home town of Andover at the time of the Revolution. The business was then carried on by his step-son, John Kneeland, whose letters descriptive of Boston during the War are in the collection. Bound volumes include account books and letter books (in incomplete series); unbound papers include domestic and foreign letters, invoices, accounts, and miscellany.
