Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Boardman & Seymour Records (2009-75-0) consist of correspondence, bills, legal documents, licenses to sell liquor, orders, receipts, statements of accounts and other business records. Daniel Boardman (1757-1833), New York City businessman and merchant, his brother Elijah Boardman (1760-1823), New Milford businessman and merchant, and Moses Seymour Jr. (1774-1826), Litchfield merchant and town official, maintained a partnership to operate a store in Litchfield in which they sold "a variety of Dry and West-India Goods, suitable for all seasons; consisting of almost every article usually retailed in a Country Store," according to a Dec. 17, 1794, advertisement in the Litchfield Monitor. The partnership was dissolved in 1804, according to a Nov. 21 newspaper advertisement.

The records (1794-1811) document the affairs and transactions of the business and the concerns of the owners, sellers of goods, and customers and are arranged in two series, Series 1, Correspondence, and Series 2, Business records. Elijah Boardman's letters to Seymour are noteworthy as they occasionally reveal his business philosophy, his take on current business and market conditions, and his opinion of events of the day.
