Unless the collection is online, you will need to make sure the collection is somewhere you can actually go to.  Harvard- special letters can be written to use Harvard collections.  Make sure by searching WorldCat that they are not available anywhere else in the Boston area.  Letters are available at the Reference Desk to write you a letter to ask for permission to get into their libraries, they doesn't mean they will!
