The Letter-Book of Thomas Baret of Norwich: merchant and textile manufacturer, 1672-1677
The Letter-Book of Thomas Baret is a leather-bound volume comprising 245 pages of copies of out-going letters sent between 1672 and 1677. An additional six pages at the end of the volume were filled in 1695; these are copies of letters sent by Baret to Sir Josiah Child, the English merchant, economist, and politician.
The volume passed into the hands of descendants of Baret’s sister, Elizabeth Rayley, and was acquired along with other Rayley papers and correspondence, first by Norwich Public Library and then by the Norfolk Record Office.
