Letters from Willis to George James Pumpelly. The correspondence is mostly written from Boston and only one letter is actually dated with the year by Willis. The letters are very personal in character, giving a rather full account of the young poet's activities, particularly his affairs of the heart, and the editing of a magazine. Also, there are two promissory notes, 1839, 1842, written by Willis for sums to be paid to Pumpelly.
