Letters to publishers, authors and friends concern his writings and details of their publication, his home "Woodlands" at Midway, S.C., his life, and the works of others, including John Pendleton Kennedy, Peter Force, Charles Warren Stoddard, Elizabeth Ellet, George Munro, John Russell, and John Esten Cooke, and briefly Cornelius Mathews and Evert A. Duyckinck. Several letters introduce authors to publishers. Others are to autograph collectors.
Letters discuss Simms' passion for the South and Southern literature as compared to the North and Northern literature. He offers both encouragement and criticism to writers and editors, and as the editor of several Southern periodicals he writes to obtain reviews and articles.
Simms writes of his ill health, yellow fever in Charleston, S.C., his need for writing projects to support his family, and his efforts to publicize his books and the books of others including John Esten Cooke's "Wearing of the Gray."
