The Loring Family Correspondence consists primarily of letters to and from Mary Pierce. The main correspondents are: Mary Pierce; Anna Pierce Brace, Mary's niece; Charles Greely Loring, Anna's husband; Jane Loring Gray and Susan Loring Jackson, daughters of Charles and Anna, grandnieces of Mary Pierce. The Lorings were a prominant family in Boston and in addition to news of the extended families (Cunninghams, Putnams, Jacksons, Grays, & Lowells) and friends, the letters describe life in Boston in the first half of the 19th century. Mary Pierce writes to Charles Greely Loring about her niece Anna Brace, family and friends in Litchfield, Conn. from 1815 to 1821.
