The collection contains a single War of 1812 letter of Wade Hampton II (Camp near Burlington, Vermont), dated 23 Aug. 1813, to Dr. Edward Fisher (Columbia, S.C.): "the affair of Plattsburg & Swanton" and the "great fuss" over the news in the southern states, gives his account of the affair and remarks, "no consequence is here attached to this loss," details British naval activities, comments on an agreement between the war and naval secretaries which prohibited army officers from exercising authority over naval officers, "But our commodore is quite a clever fellow & will not hesitate to cooperate when convinced of the necessity," and reports favorably on the improvement of the American troops.Wade Hampton II spent considerable time at his plantation in Walnut Ridge, Mississippi. Affectionate letters to his daughter, Mary Fisher Hampton, 26 Dec. 1850 and 26 Dec. 1853, wish his children a "merry Christmas," regret that they were not with him "to witness the enjoyment of the negroes" during the holiday festivities, list items of food and clothing which he had distributed, and comment on the election of John Hugh Means (1812-1862) as governor, "they might I think have done better" [Means served as governor of South Carolina from 1850 to 1852]. A letter of Washington Irving to William C. Preston, 17 Nov. 1854, remarks that many of his European acquaintances had died since his last visit, and encloses a letter introducing Wade Hampton II to Henry Hallam (1777-1859)
