Senders with more than one letter have the number of letters in parentheses following their names. The majority of the letters are from authors, including George Bancroft, Robert Montgomery Bird, Charles Lucian Bonaparte, William Cullen Bryant, Fleetwood Churchill, Willis Gaylord Clark (2), James Fenimore Cooper, George William Featherstonhaugh, Henry D. Gilpin, John D. Godman, Mary Griffith, John Griscom, Washington Irving (2), John Kennedy Pendleton (4), James Kent, William Francis Lynch (3), Grenville Mellen, Eliza Robbins, L.H. Sigourney, Nathaniel Parker Willis, and William B. Wood.

Other senders write to order books, settle accounts, recommend or complain about publications, and deal with other publishing business. These include former University of Pennsylvania provost Frederick Beasley, William Shepard Biddle, clergymen George Washington Doane and Samuel Miller (filed under D. Fenton), Peter Stephen Du Ponceau, U.S. congressman Edward Everett (2, including one about copyright law), Joseph Henry, John McLean, and American Journal of Science editor Benjamin Silliman (2). Senders directly involved with the company as employees or booksellers include Edward L. Carey, A.W. Griswold, Robert Walsh, and M.L. Weems.
