Collected material on microfilm, 1819-1867
Microfilm reels 1-3

Scope and Content Note

There are in the collection microfilm copies of family and business correspondence dating from 1819 to 1867. These materials are similar to letters in Series 1 of the collection. The originals are located in the William H. Stiles papers, the Mackay-Stiles papers, and the Orr-Patterson papers held by the Southern Historical Collection of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Additionally, Series 6 includes copies of diplomatic notes and correspondence, 1845-1849, relating to Stiles's tenure as charge d'affaires to Austria obtained from the National Archives. Among copies of materials held in the National Archives are letters exchanged by Stiles and officials of the Confederate War Department during the Civil War. There are also microfilm copies of pages from The Savannah Daily Republican, May 20-24, 1831, relating to the debate about restrictions on the culture of rice in fields close to the city.

Documents that relate to these microfilm copies can be found in Series 1, Correspondence, Series 2, Diaries, and Series 3, Writings. This collected microfilm material was given to the library by C. Lee Harwell. This department does not normally reproduce from reproductions for which it does not hold the original material.
