Letters from American military officer, politician, journalist, and railroad industrialist Duff Green to various parties. Early letters are political in nature, with most written in confidence, including an 1827 letter to publishers Gale and Seaton effectively leaking information relating to the Democratic Party from an unnamed colleague. The bulk of the letters date from 1858-1859, and pertain to Green's involvement with railroad expansion and consolidation projects, including the Texas Railroad and the New Mexican Railway, and to land grants relating to those railroads
Material was originally received as part of the Ford collection.
