The collection consists of letters written in shorthand developed by Andrews and Watson of Boston. At first, these letters appear extremely exotic. Once accustomed to the form, however, they become readable. The first letter of 11 June 1844 is from Edwin F. Watson to "Rev. E.A. Marshall" [Alexis E. Marshall] and explains the setting up of the shorthand system, its peculiarities, and its usefulness. It is primarily in familiar cursive. The remainder of the letters, though, are in shorthand. All are to Marshall from Watson or are in Marshall's hand. Most are addressed to him in Eatonton and Penfield, Georgia.
