Thomas Prince (1687-1758) was a graduate of Harvard College, a clergyman, scholar, historian, pastor of the Old South Church in Boston, Mass. from 1718 to 1758, and author of A Chronological History of New England, in the Form of Annals (1736). Collection includes three letters, dated 1721, 1726, and 1738, to Thomas Prince, pastor of the Old South Church in Boston. There are two letters from Prince's sister Abigail in Middleborough, Mass., dated January 4, 1721 and February 25, 1726, both discussing family matters such as health, various leases and deeds, and other subjects. In another letter, dated 1738, Prince's mother-in-law Grace Denny, of Old Newton, England, discusses her anxiety about not hearing from Prince, her declining health, and politics and the royal family in England. In a postscript, Denny notes that she has "heard of a printed account about Great Conversions in Hampshire...by the the Rev'd Doctor Watts and Doctor Guyse."
