Miscellaneous correspondence, principally dealing with Governor Ames' Reconstruction administration. Of special interest is the correspondence with E. Benjamin Andrews, President of Brown University, discussing the historical significance of Ames' administration. One long letter written by Ames gives a detailed and careful account of the finances of the state of Mississippi during the Reconstruction period. One letter to Governor Ames, signed with the initial "M," gives "secret" information on the Vicksburg riots.
