Scope and Contents note:
The collection consists of business correspondence of homeopathic physicians Henry Barden and his son, William Wallace Barden, of Penn Yan, New York.

The contents of Series 1: Family Correspondence are arranged alphabetically by surname of the individual to whom the correspondence was addressed. Series 2: Business Correspndence is arranged chronologically. The original arrangement was retained. The letters were removed from their associated envelopes and flattened, but remain together.
