Scope and Content

Five letters by Senator D.L. Yulee of Florida to the following: to R.J. Walker, 1846 Mar. 26; to John B. Pollock, Cincinnati, 1853 Feb. 20; Letter from Washington to Messrs. Lansing and associates regretting that he will be unable to attend a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1856 July 27, 2 pages); to Capt. M. L. Smith about a shipment of goods to Homossassa, Hernando County, Florida, 1859 Dec. 26, annotated in 1862 after it was among materials captured by the Union Army in Florida; and to Col. Robert Onld, Richmond, 1863 July 1, requesting his assistance in the release of Florida civilians confined at Hilton Head, whom Yulee believes "are held as victims of retaliation in case Negroes or their Union Army officers are caught by Confederate troops and hanged." Also present is a telegram from Yulee, Washington, D.C., 1860 Dec. 27, to F. W. Pickens, Charleston, S.C., stating that Maj. Anderson's movement was without authority and that Yulee thinks he will be ordered back at once and perhaps altogether withdrawn.
