The collection contains 25 letter books of the N. N. Hill Brass Company of Middleton, CT, which manufactured bells and toys.
Copies of approximately 12,500 letters are included in the letter books. Many deal with shipment of goods and related matters.
Some are faint and barely legible. It appears, from the gaps in the date spans, that some volumes are lacking in the collection.
