Caleb Davis Bradlee (1831-1897) was a doctor of divinity and the minister of several Unitarian churches in Boston.
The collection consists of thirteen letters to C.D. Bradlee. Judging by his notes on the back of them, he valued them for their autographs. Some of the letters are filled in printed forms; some are autograph letters, signed. They are mainly acknowledgments of Bradlee's sermons and poems sent as gifts.
