|Abstract:||The collection consists of papers of the Thomas family of Athens (Ga.) from 1849-1942. The papers include mainly correspondence but also receipts, photographs, printed material, and legal documents. The correspondence contains letters (1849-1853) from Thomas Safford to Peninah W. Thomas; letters (1872-1887) between George Dudley Thomas, Stevens Thomas, and Pina Thomas; letters (1888-1893) from George Dudley Thomas to Katie Morton (Thomas); and from 1923-1942 scattered letters between DuBose family members. Most of the letters discuss social events and news of family or friends but a few mention U.S. politics, particularly the 1876 Presidential election; George Dudley Thomas' law practice; plantation management; and the cotton market.|
