The collection contains correspondence written from Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana by various members of Mrs. Bogey's family, the Fleetwoods, between June 1834 and December 1840.

The letters are primarily concerned with family matters such as deaths and illness. Included are comments on crop failures in Mississippi, productivity of the soil, adverse weather conditions, and inflated prices of goods, land, slaves, and steamboat transportation. Other topics mentioned concern immigration from North Carolina to the Mississippi-Alabama area, dissatisfaction with the lack of social life, and religious fervor caused in Lenoir County, N.C., by a visit from a traveling preacher.
