Hubard, regarding agricultural matters, especially the tobacco market, the purchase and sale of stock, Virginia politics and fiscal policy, family matters and finances, his wife's death, the education of his sons, Virginia Military Institute, Hampden-Sydney College, the Brookland School, and social life in Richmond.
