    Abstract:
    The letters of Isabella Ann Smith Suverkrop (1819-1903) and Edward Albert Suverkrop (1814-1895) provide an intimate glimpse into family life and society in America and Scotland of more than 150 years ago. Gold Rush California and Civil War Washington, DC, are included.
    Notes:
    The Gold Rush letters transcribed here reside in the permanent collection of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park & State Indian Museum, California State Parks, 2701 L Street, Sacramento, California. Those letters appearing here dated before 1848 and after the American Civil War (after 1865) are in the possession of the Suverkrop family.
