The bulk of the collection (354 letters) consists of Barrett's own personal and professional correspondence, both incoming and outgoing letters. The letters cover Barrett's his entire life and career, especially his studies at Middlebury College (class of 1845); teaching at various private schools in Vermont and New Hampshire (1845-1848); association with the American Whig Review and various New England newspapers (1848-1851); service in the Vermont House of Representatives (1851-1853); the courtship and marriage, intense religious soul-searching that led him from Congregationalism, to Universalism and finally to the Episcopal Church, covering politics for the Cincinnati Gazette (1857-1861), editorship of the Cincinnati Times and Chronicle (1868-1892), and his literary work, particularly his 1888, 1902, and 1904 biographies of Lincoln. Also included letters to the editor received by Barrett as the editor of the Cincinnati Chronicle and Times.
