The bulk of the collection comprises what are evidently the official records of Imperial Mexican Consulate at New York during the years 1863-1867. Loosey was a friend of Maximilian and acted as an unoffical agent to help further his interests in the United States. Included are ca. 950 letters from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and government agencies of Imperial Mexico addressed to Mexican consuls in New York and New Orleans, 1864-1867; 70 letters to Luis Arroyo, consul general of the Mexican Empire, 1865; minutes and "reserved" minutes of the consulate general in New York, Aug.-Oct., 1865; letterbooks containing copies of letters sent by Loosey, 1862-1867; letterbooks of Luis Arroyo, 1865-1867; 54 telegrams to and from Maximilian and Empress Carlota, many of them in code, 1866-1867; 59 invoices of cargoes arriving in Mexico, 1864-1865; laws and decrees issued by various offices of the Imperial Mexican government; correspondence and papers of Charles de Loosey relating to investments and financial interests in Mexico, particularly to Mexican Gas Works, American and Mexican Mail Steamship Co., the Save and Kulpa Steamship Line, et. al., including correspondence with William Henry Hurlbut, Hugo Fritsch, Richard Barry, Henry M. Flint, Oliver de Ressequier, Simon G. Sina, and others. Also included are news clippings pertaining to Mexico, 1863-1867, and ca. 150 accounts and receipts of the Mexican Consulate of New York. Much of the correspondence pertains to routine consular affairs, activities of Benito Juarez and his agents, attitude in the United States toward the monarchy, activities of Emperor Maximilian and his government, filibusters, activities of General Santa Anna, the Santanista Party, a plot against Maximilian's life, United States internal affairs, and other Mexican political and military affairs. The remainder of the collection principally consists of private correspondence of the Loosey and Havemeyer families (Loosey's daughter, Emily, married Theodore A. Havemeyer), including many letters between Loosey and his wife, Ida, and correspondence of Theodore A., Henry O., Blanche, and other members of the Havemeyer family. Bulk of the collection is in In Spanish and German; English translations are available for some items.
