Baxter containing extracts from her readings, an autograph book, an 1806 diary (author unknown) describing activities in Hancock and surrounding counties in Georgia, and genealogies of the Baxter, Bird, and allied families. Early correspondence (1839-1851) is between members of the Baxter family including letters between Thomas W. and Mary Baxter discussing his health, taxes, and land values; and letters from Leroy M. Wiley to Thomas detailing Wiley's trip to England in 1839.

The Civil War letters from Edgeworth discuss the battles of Gettysburg (Pa.), Richmond (Va.), 2nd Bull Run (Va.), Chickamauga, the Atlanta Campaign, and Sherman's March through Georgia. The letters also detail the management of Granite Farm (Hancock County, Ga.), slavery, and Saida's studies.
