Tench Coxe (1755-1824) was an American political economist and a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress in 1788-1789. He was the son of William Coxe and grandson of English physician and governor Daniel Coxe and jurist Tench Francis, Sr. The letters are mainly outgoing. The majority date from 1790-1793, while Coxe served in the Department of the Treasury, and relate to official business. Most are addressed to Jedediah Huntington in his capacity as Superintendent of Lighthouses for the newly-formed United States Lighthouse Establishment.
