Also included are several letters, such as a John M. Berrien autograph letter signed (Berrien had served as President Andrew Jackson's attorney general) and other personal letters (Murray and Irwin County residents writing about local elections, religion, and farm life: "I want to see you all very Bad but my business is arranged so that I can't come yet for I have a very large crop on hand and it is powerful likely so far but I expect if I have good luck by hard driving that I can get through ploughing this coming week and then I have got to build a house for I have not built a house since you were here except a crib and a smoke house.") Some foxing, soiling, and weakness and separation at folds. In all, an intriguing archive offering insight into nineteenth century Georgia life.
