Waterhouse, Benjamin, 1754-1846, A.L.s. to Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn; Cambridge, 1 side (2 pages), 1833 July 17, 1833 July 17 Digital

Scope and Contents

In correspondence to lawyer and politician Dearborn, Waterhouse comments on three volumes of a manuscript he had sent Waterhouse, possibly his Manuscript on the Life of General Dearborn. The seven-volume book, published in 1822-1824, addressed the contemporary controversy over differing accounts of his father, General Henry Dearborn (1751-1829), and General Israel Putnam (1718-1790) regarding the Battle of Bunker Hill. Waterhouse also discusses the activities of the local Anti-Masonic Party.
