Papers primarily concerned with Heiss' career as a newspaper editor and business manager and his services as diplomatic agent for Nicaragua when William Walker was in power in that country. Consists of correspondence, editorials, dispatches, legal documents, and two scrapbooks on Nicaragua. A primary concern of Heiss was cultivation of cotton in Central America and he was very interested in development of the cotton gin.

Some letters also deal with the Mosquito Territory question, about which Heiss was appointed a special commissioner. Prominent correspondents include William Walker, James K. Polk, Joseph Brenan, Lewis S. Coryell, J.R. Coxe, Jr., George M. Dallas, John Davis, Daniel E. Delavan, Fermín Ferrer, Hugh Fraser, George B. Mathew, William Nelson, A.O.P. Nicholson, J.D.
