The correspondence consists of a letter (1972) from Joseph Redmond Williams, president of Tobacco Associates, Inc., to Sugg giving his observation on British involvement in the tobacco trade and tobacco prices.

Included with the letter is a copy of a speech (1972) made by Williams before the South Carolina Warehouse Association congratulating its members for a job well done in promoting U.S. tobacco in other markets.

Several annual reports containing annual production and sales figures are included; two were prepared by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (1971, 1972), one by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture (1971-1972), and one by Interstate Tobacco Company (1948).

A collection of annual reports (1949-1972) of Tobacco Associates Incorporated is included. These give statistics for annual production and sales.
