Summary
Virgil Maxcy (1785-1844) was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts, graduated from Brown University in 1804, and became an attorney and politician in Maryland. The papers consist of a journal, correspondence, and an undated July Fourth oration. The journal was kept in 1802 while Maxcy was acting as a tutor for the Roberts family near Columbia, South Carolina, and contains discussions of social life, adolescent concerns, and accounts of [Baptist] Association meetings and other religious manifestations in South Carolina and Kentucky. Correspondence dates from 1815 and 1843 with the bulk dating between 1821 and 1843. Letters relate chiefly to professional matters, particularly pertaining to his duties as Solicitor of the Treasury, though a letter from his brother, Jonathan Maxcy, is present.
