Correspondents include William Short, John Tyler, and Bushrod Washington. Also contains correspondence, account books, and legal records of John Caile, tobacco merchant and clerk of Dorchester County, Md., in part concerning the Stamp Act; and an account book, 1731-1767, and miscellany of John Mercer, lawyer of Stafford County, Va.

Correspondents include Carter Braxton and Richard Sprigg (1769?-1806) and topics covered include the Alien and Sedition Acts, the 1796 presidential election, and timber provided by Sprigg for the construction of a naval frigate.
