Also, includes Ruffin's 1843 diary kept as agricultural surveyor of South Carolina; autobiographical "incidents of my life" covering the period 1821-1851, in part concerning the establishment of the Farmer's Register, Shellbanks and Petersburg, Va., and the Virginia Agricultural Society; and essays and speeches concerning agriculture, slavery, and Ruffin's opposition to African colonization.

Also, includes diaries, 1843-1847, of Julian Calx Ruffin, concerning farming operations at "Ruthven," Prince George County, Va.
