Guide to the Levi Bartlett Papers, 1839-1877

About Levi Bartlett
Levi Bartlett (1793-1885) was a tanner and farmer of Warner, New Hampshire. In the
1830s, Bartlett sold off his tannery and struggled to cultivate his family’s farm.
From his experience in reclaiming this nutrient-exhausted land, Bartlett became a
proponent of scientific farming and began writing occasional columns for
agricultural magazines. He was especially interested in geology and chemistry as it
related to agriculture.
About the Levi Bartlett Papers
The first two folders contain eleven autographed letters written by Bartlett and
drafts of two letters he wrote to others, dealing primarily with the subject of
agriculture. The latter two folders contain the autographed texts of four addresses
made by Bartlett. Two deal with agriculture, one with geology, and one with the
issue of slavery.
