Abstract:

Papers consist of personal and family correspondence, estate papers, diaries, journals, notes, and other items pertaining to Caroline Petigru Carson.

Correspondence of Caroline P. Carson is mainly with her father, James L. Petigru, and her sons, William A. and James Petigru Carson, from New York (N.Y.), and from Italy and elsewhere in Europe. Other correspondents include Gen. J.J. Pettigrew, Henry Ward Beecher, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Gen. William T. Sherman, and Orville Dewey. Letters concern family, legal, and financial matters, the French spoliation claims, Dean Hall Plantation, and social, political, and cultural affairs in Rome (Italy).

Estate papers include an estate inventory, lists of personal belongings, Carson's will, and accounts. Other items include suggestions for the epitaph of James Louis Petigru, invitations, address books, a poem, a list (1861) of items lost in a fire, and notes on painting and photography techniques.

Diaries (1872-1892) concern personal, family, and social matters and travels. Journals include a travel journal (1861-1875) noting expenses.
