The papers consist chiefly of letters to Childs in thanks for copies of "Recollections" and "The Stratford upon Avon memorial fountain to Shakespeare." There are very brief mentions of the Philadelphia "Public Ledger," the "Commercial Bulletin," and "Lippincott's magazine," hopes for fairer treatment of American Indians, U.S. Grant's travels in Grenada and Peking, memorial church windows in London, the common bond between England and the U.S., and portraits of Union generals at West Point
