Thompson, Sir Peter Thompson’s letterbook

Sir Peter Thompson's letterbook for September 1760 to April 1764. Letterbooks are lists of original letters kept in chronological order. This one contains a wealth of extra information. He records: ships coming in and out of the Harbour and their skippers, the weather, lists of burgesses, an insight into local politics such as the contentious election of 1760, a perspective on the war with the French in Canada and other curious miscellaneous details. A photocopy of the original document is kept in Poole History Centre - transcribed by Museum volunteer Audrey Cox.
