             Historical note 
             The Cincinnati, Louisville and East Tennessee Railroad was chartered by the Kentucky Legislature in 1867. The charter was granted in response to the city of Cincinnati's need for permission to build a road connecting it with the south, and specifically with the east Tennessee cities of Knoxville and Chattanooga. The new railroad's rights under the charter were restricted, however, and the Kentucky Central Railroad declined to be identified with the scheme. Little came of the venture, and it was the Cincinnati Southern Railway that was eventually successful in forging a rail link with the south through the Kentucky bluegrass region.

             Scope and Contents note 
             The Cincinnati, Louisville and East Tennessee records consist of financial statements, balance sheets, receipts for bills and correspondence concerning the railroad. Included are statements of finance and balance sheets for the period 1858-1876, an 1861 statement by the engineer in charge of the railroad, W. A. Gunn, several notarized statements of agreement to serve on the board of directors of the railroad, executed in Boyle county and Covington, Ky., letters from W. A. Gunn, in his capacity as secretary of the railroad, to William Ernst, written in 1876, and numerous bills and receipts from Lexington, Ky. merchants for goods and services rendered between 1884 and 1891. The papers document early attempts to join Cincinnati by rail with southern states and southern Atlantic ports, and also provide considerable information on the identification of Lexington merchants in the late 19th century.
