Summary
The papers consist predominantly of outgoing letters from American statesman Joseph Jones of Virginia to various parties concerning political issues and legal matters. Letters written to Edmund Pendleton in 1782 document Jones' participation in and reflections on the Congress of the Confederation. Other recipients include Theodorick Bland, Jeremiah Wadsworth, and Seaborn Jones (likely the uncle of the Georgia representative of the same name). Also present are documents and drafts of documents, presumably written by Jones, relating to the suit brought by the Indiana Company against the state of Virginia; and to various territorial claims.
