The correspondence provides an intimate look into activities in the household of Forest Place during a period of great propserity and a period of decline. The letters reveal the poignant history of Dr. Watkins, a non practicing physician, his wife, and their two daughters.

Besides offering a glimpse into the domestic life on a cotton plantation, these letters picture the years both of abundance and of twilight at Forest Place.
