Topics discussed include Salley's research on the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence (1905-1912, 1915, 1921), including correspondence with Ulrich B. Phillips re the lack of evidence for such a document and other matters; politics, especially the administration of Gov. Coleman L. Blease; conservation of wildlife; meetings of the American Historical Association in Charleston and Columbia in 1913; statues of Wade Hampton, George Washington, and other aspects of the buildings and grounds of the S.C. Statehouse; genealogical research; Jamison Monument Fund; Salley's work as secretary of the S.C. Historical Society and as state historian of the S.C. Historical Commission; political leaflets and handbills.

Earliest materials include family letters from 1880s and 1890s; letters discussing Salley's studies while enrolled at The Citadel; comments news of crime, murder, race relations, and law enforcement in Orangeburg County, S.C., in letters from Salley's father, A.M. Salley, sheriff, ca. 1888-1890s, including comments on the Dispensary distribution of liquor and expressing hopes for a prohibition of alcohol sales (26 Jan. 1889); growth of cotton and other crops; comments on Benjamin R.
