Abstract:

Papers largely consist of letters to Henry Vignaud from friends in Louisiana, among them the journalists Eugene Dumez and L. Placide Canonge and the jurist Edward Bermudez, and from friends and officials in the U.S. Department of State and the diplomatic service, Americans in public life, literary figures, historians, journalists, and other writers.

The largest unit of the collection is composed of 89 letters, written in French, from Eugene Dumez. The letters, written in France and, beginning in 1864, from St. John the Baptist Parish, La., pertain to the Civil War and Reconstruction, with particular emphasis on the Confederate missions to France and England and efforts to secure recognition of the Confederacy, and, after the arrival of Dumez in Louisiana, to the military, political, social, and economic conditions and problems in Louisiana. Some of the letters concern Dumez's work as an editor of the French language newspapers Le Meschacébé and L'Avant-coureur, and shed light on late Civil War and post-war journalism in Louisiana.

Nearly equal in size is a series of 75 letters, also written in French, from L. Placide Canonge, a New Orleans writer, journalist, and editor of the newspaper L'Abeille de la Nouvelle Orleans and the political and the literary journal L'Epoque. They concern literature, the theater, journalism, and other cultural matters of mutual interest in Louisiana and France. A smaller group of personal letters, chiefly in French, from Edward Bermudez, chief justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, concern a visit to France and mutual friends in Louisiana and France. Letters from friends and officials in the diplomatic service reflect the work and service of Vignaud in the U.S. Department of State.

An assortment of letters from American writers express appreciation to Vignaud for his interest in their work and touch on his own historical research and writing. Correspondents include George Bancroft, Justin Winsor, Daniel Coit Gilman, Fred Morrow Fling, G.W. Smalley, William Henry Trescot, Albert Rhodes, Grace King, Francis Wharton, A. Thorndike Rice, and Moncure Daniel Conway.
