Accounts, 15 Oct. 1824 and 2 Sept. 1837, listing expenses for plantation and household supplies; letter, 5 July 1842 (Washington, D.C.), from W[illiam] B[erkeley] Lewis, [Second Auditor of the U.S. Treasury], to WT in Mexico, enclosing letter to be translated into Spanish applying to the Mexican government for indemnity "in relation to our claim upon the Texan Government," commenting on friction between President [John] Tyler and Congress over proposed distribution of the land fund; letter, 11 Dec. 1842 (Washington, D.C.), from Brantz Mayer [Secretary of U.S. Legation to Mexico], to WT re his return "through the South" to settle his father's estate, reports on interview with [Daniel] Webster and his dissatisfaction with the proposed treaty with Mexico, possible change in status of minister, Mayer's chances of appointment to Denmark, Thompson's popularity in Mexico, resignation of [William C.] Preston and [John C.] Calhoun, appraisal of presidential candidates: [Martin] Van Buren, [Thomas H.] Benton, [James] Buchanan, [Lewis] Cass, [John C.] Calhoun, and [Henry] Clay, "I think it highly probably that Tyler or Cass will be the man, - tho' Calhoun's stock is rising...."

Letter, 18 Mar. 1843 (Demopolis, Ala.), from F[rancis] S[trother] Lyon, requesting Thompson's aid in providing comfort to David S. Kornegay, taken prisoner in Texas; letter, 2 July 1843, from T[homas] J[efferson] Green, "Castle of Perote," to Santa Anna, stating conditions of his health since his imprisonment with a medical certificate, discussing "medical assistance necessary for my restoration... I have not been trusted upon parole"; draft of a letter, 17 Oct. 1843 (U.S. Legation, Mexico) to Jose M. de Bocanegra, presenting a counter project for settlement of "claims pending between the Government and citizens of the U.S. States and the Government & citizens of the Mexican Republic."
