Ichabod Plaisted, born on March 29, 1796, graduated from Bowdoin College in 1821. He died June 21, 1831 in Gardiner, Maine. Ichabod was a clergyman in North Rochester, Massachusetts from 1826 to 1829. His brother, Samuel Plaisted, graduated from Bowdoin in 1828. He was born in 1801 in Gardiner, Maine and later became a physician in Waterville.

The Ichabod and Samuel Plaisted letters date from 1819 to 1831. The letters are primarily correspondence between the four Plaisted Brothers -- Ichabod, Samuel, John, and James. They discuss life at Bowdoin, popular literature, money, and family matters. Ichabod describes in detail his fatal illness and some of the treatments he tried. One of Samuel's letters refers to his theological studies at the Andover Seminary. Also included in the collection are several brief biographies of the Plaisted brothers written by their descendants.
