The Hains mss., ca. 1842–1851, consist of letters from Samuel P. Hains primarily to Adam H. Atkinson. Haines was sent to Indiana by his friend Atkinson, who apparently gave him a piece of the land to farm as his share. In these 11 letters, Hains shares details of his experiences in Swan, Indiana in Noble County, near Fort Wayne.
