Abstract:

Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours (1739-1817) was a French political economist, writer, publisher, and public administrator.

This collection contains six photocopied letters of du Pont de Nemours to Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), and de Staël letters to unknown correspondents. The letters include references to the political situation in France, services of du Pont de Nemours printing establishment, and national affairs.
