It contains letters to Dr. James Carmichael, and his son, Dr. Edward Carmichael, 1819-1834, requesting medical treatment, prescriptions, and visits to area plantations. There are also a few accounts and receipts, some dealing with the purchase of reference books and medical supplies, often from a Philadelphia firm run by Thomas and Judah Dobson. Dr. Carmichael's day book, 1816-1817, Is also included in the collection. James Barbour, Edmund Berkeley, St. Ledger Landon Carter, Burr Harrison, Fontaine Maury, Hugh Mercer, Hubbard T. Minor, Mann Page, and Bushrod Washington are among the correspondents requesting treatment as are members of the Alexander, Alsop, Banks, Battaile, Brooke, Herndon, Hooe, Maury, Pratt, Selden, Stanard, Straughan, and Taliaferro families. Letters of special interest include one from Robert Carter from Sabine Hall, 1828, concerning the dispositions of slaves in whom Mrs. Carter had a life share and from John Gray at the University of Virginia, 1825, who agreed to comply with a subpoena.
