Summary :

This collection consists of letters written by members of the Chapin family of East Calais and North Montpelier, Vermont, between 1881 and 1943. Most of the letters were written by family members to Emma May Chapin (called May) of East Calais between 1927 and 1943. The letters are chatty and full of family news.

The two oldest letters in the collection (1881 and 1895) are those written to Diane Goodell Chapin in North Montpelier by her sister and one of her children.

The collection includes photocopied obituaries for Walter Chapin and his daughter, Pearl, as well as a handwritten 1943 list of May Chapin's children and their birth years.
