The Clark-Warner Family Papers consist of the correspondence of two generations of a family residing in western Massachusetts (principally South Hadley). Most of the correspondence was within the family, but there are also a few letters from friends. The major components are the courtship letters of Asel Clark and Clarissa Warner, l834-35; other letters received by Clarissa (Warner) Clark at this time and in later years; and correspondence among their five children, l862-77. Among the major subjects are courtship, opportunities for resettlement, and communication between separated family members. The overall arrangement is by generation and then by sender.
