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. Some include passages written to various favored slaves, who in return dictated their responses. 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. The national sectional controversy attracts only scant attention
