The collection consists of approximately 250 letters from E.A. Nisbet to Amanda Battle before and after their 1825 marriage. There are a few letters from their children and their friends. Although Nisbet's letters deal mainly with family matters, he also discusses politics and fellow politicians, especially while in Washington, D.C. The collection also includes two framed oil portraits and a pecan desk chair. One of the paintings is of Amanda Battle, dated 1841, and with the frame is 36 1/2" x 32," the other is of E.A. Nisbet and is 20 1/4" x 17". The chair, which has a carved back with four spindles and an upholstered seat, belonged to Amanda Nisbet.
