    Scope and Content

    This collection of William Chapman Ralston correspondence was given to The Bancroft Library by The Bank of California in 1976, accompanied by this detailed inventory, which summarizes the content of each letter in the collection. The inventory also summarizes Ralston, and Ralston-related letters, located in other repositories. The item numbers were assigned to the letters when they were at the Bank. Unnumbered items indicate that the items are either in another repository (and are so noted) or have not been transferred to the Library.
