Scope & Content Two letters written in the last year of Peabody's life, penned by his nephew George Peabody Russell.

The first on July 19, 1869 refers to a Boston Daily Courier article about Peabody's visit. Efforts to correct errors in the article are described. He ends by letting the recipient know they are leaving for Sulphur Springs.

The next letter on July 27, 1869 is from Sulphur Springs and continues the references to the news account. This one speaks more directly of Peabody's health, which was not good.
