A letter dated 21 June 1865 to Capt. J. M. Cary of Chunnemgger [sic], Alabama. Blelock, a publisher in New York, offered "the most liberal terms" for the future literary productions of Augusta Jane Evans (Wilson) (1835-1909), an immensely popular sentimental novelist. What connection there was between the letter's recipient and its subject is not clear; possibly Blelock was writing to Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry (1825-1903), a friend of Evans's.

This collection consists of twelve letters from Boatwright, an Ordnance officer in the Confederate Army, stationed at Savannah Georgia, to his wife in Columbia, South Carolina, although the letters suggest that the Boatwrights were from Virginia. The earliest letter is dated 22 December 1863, the last 14 May 1864. The contents are largely personal; Boatwright was deeply devoted to his wife and in virtually every letter states how much he misses her. The strain of separation was doubtless increased by Mrs. Boatwright's pregnancy (see in particular letter of 1 May 1864). Occasionally Boatwright mentions the situation at Savannah and the course of the war; on 26 April 1864, for example, he alludes to the Army's financial straits. The letter of the following day states that "we are making the grandest of efforts in the world to frustrate the plans of the Yankees this spring" and that "Every Regiment from this place except one has been ordered to the front." There is also a fragment of a letter, possibly to Boatwright, from a J. W. Magill, referring to ammunition, no date.
