Letterbook of Greg & Cunningham, 1756-57 by Thomas M. Truxes

Book Description

The correspondence from the most successful Irish-American trading firm of the colonial period forms a remarkable archive for economic historians of the eighteenth century. This is an edition of a letterbook that contains the first nine months of correspondence from this New York trading house. The letters to commercial contacts throughout the North Atlantic region offer a vivid picture of the transatlantic economy. And the private communications of Waddell Cunningham to his partner, Thomas Greg in Belfast, allow a rare behind-the-scenes look at the management and operation of an overseas merchant house. Guided by Professor Truxes's authoritative introduction, we can see in these letters the difficulties of decision-making over long distances, the problems of over-stretched resources, and the impact of the Seven Years War on the evolution of a vigorous enterprise.

The ship Two Sisters, captured in 1757 in the midst of the Seven Years War, was carrying letters from the Irish community in Bordeaux. Most of the 125 letters lay unopened until 2011. Now, translated and annotated, they communicate the everyday concerns of people separated in wartime and shed light on early modern trade and expatriate communities.
