Early American History Note

The Shippen Family Collection is composed of two boxes of loose-lead correspondence and other documents. This collection is part of the larger Shippen-Burd Papers. What distinguishes this collection from the others is the large amount of female letter writers. Elizabeth Shippen is the largest single writer in this collection and her correspondents include members of the family and other prominent women, such as Jane Galloway Shippen.

The correspondence is wide-ranging, although chronologically strongest in the revolutionary and early republican periods. The content of the letters provides insight on the culture of Philadelphia during this period. That is not to say there are not significant letters from other periods. The collection contains letters from Joseph Shippen during the Seven Years' War while stationed in western Pennsylvania and a few pieces from the revolutionary era, some of which discuss the Battle of Brandywine.

The vast majority, however, covers the early republic and early national period. Although the letters discuss the wide range of events happening in this period (there is a long letter from John Shippen while in Pittsburg because of the Whiskey Rebellion, several letters relating the affairs of the federal government, and discussion of Yellow Fever), topically the collection largely covers family affairs and economic concerns.
