Excerpt from Calendar of the Papers of John Jordan Crittenden: Prepared From the Original Manuscripts in the Library of Congress

The John Jordan Crittenden papers, of which this is a Calendar, consist of letters written to Crittenden, some law papers, principally relating to land-title suits, and a few copies of his own letters and speeches preserved by him and retained by his descendants. The papers were acquired by the Library in April, 1905, from Mrs. Robert H. Crittenden, of Frankfort, Ky.

The depositions in lawsuits are of value for early Kentucky history. The letters from prominent politicians and statesmen, during Gritten den's long career in the public service, are replete with comments on national questions and estimates of the public men of the time. The letters of George M. Bibb, Henry Clay, Joseph H. Hawkins, Francis P. Blair, and Anthony Butler are the most important of the earliest correspondence; and the chief ones for the later period are from James Barbour, William S. Archer, Samuel Smith Nicholas, Humphrey Marshall, Orlando Brown, Robert Perkins Letcher, Alex ander Porter, Benjamin Watkins Leigh, Zachary Taylor, Reverdy Johnson, Leslie Combs, Winfield Scott, James Middleton Clayton, Abbott Lawrence, Robert Toombs, Thomas Ewing, Thomas Corwin, Alexander H. Stephens, Robert Charles Winthrop, Amos Adams Lawrence, and James Rogers Underwood.

During the period of his attempted compromise, immediately before the Civil War, the correspondence is extensive.

The preliminary work on the Calendar was done by Mr. Wilmer R. Leech, while an assistant in the Manuscripts Division, but now of the State Historian's office, New York; it was completed by Mr. C. N.
