Extracts from letters and diaries of William Whewell, with his MS poem, "On receiving a chain of Hair"

Bound volume of extracts of William Whewell's letters to his family and perhaps his own diaries, dating from 1812-1839 with the bulk of the material dated 1812-1821.

These extracts are continued by short summaries of Whewell's activities in the years from 1821 to 1839, possibly drawn from diaries, but not identified as such. Accompanied by a poem signed W. W., written on his engagement to Cordelia Marshall.
