Among the numerous correspondents are James Brown, United States Minister to France, Judge A. Porter, Edward Everett, Matthew S. Quay, R. W. Stoddard, William Shaler, Henry D. Gilpin, Nicholas Biddle, John H. Johnston, and others. Some of the topics and issues discussed in these papers are: the Antimasonic movement, the recharter of the United States Bank, Judge Peck's impeachment, French spoliation claims, tariff, sugar, expansion of territory, legislation before Congress, etc. A large portion of the material relates to political affairs in Louisiana, the building of roads and canals, land claims, memorials to Congress, cotton, slavery, requests for governmental positions, election to office, etc. Henry Clay's letters, 1824-1833, deal with his personal aspirations and his bitterness against Andrew Jackson; letter of Thomas Jefferson, 1825; Dr. John Sibley letters, 1821-1832; invitation to a reception tendered to Marquis de Lafayette, 1824; family letters disclosing Senator Johnston's personal affairs and financial transactions; there are also some personal items of William S.
