This series contains financial material related to twelve members of the Garrison Family. It is arranged alphabetically by person and contains tax information, probate and estate records, inventories, items related to real estate, ledgers, business diaries, expense logs, and related correspondence. Financial/business correspondence related to property owned at Cape Cod is located in Series 6: Subject Files_Wianno. The largest amounts of material relate to both the WLG 1838's and WLG 1874's business and personal affairs. WLG 1838's business material includes brokerage (1873) and mortgage (1889_1901) books and an investment ledger (1889_92), as well as a sales journal (1877_78). There is material related to trust accounts he handled for Mary E. Robinson, Theodore Dwight Weld, Eliza Church, and Theodore Grimk� Weld (1875_1903). The personal material includes correspondence (1903_10), estate matters (1892_1936), real estate (1903_10), personal securities (1903), expenses (1890_1904), and ledgers (1872_1900). WLG 1874's business material consists of diaries (1898_1904); Perry Coffin & Burr material, including correspondence (1900_57), trust accounts for Mary Randall (1902_07) and Theodore Grimk� Weld (1905_23); and correspondence and legal papers for his partnership. There is considerable overlap with Series 3: Correspondence because WLG 1874 handled business affairs for family members and friends. His personal material includes estate items (1928), house construction and repair correspondence (1901_17), and personal ledgers (1907_38).
