This collection consists of a single letter written by James Wilkinson, from Loftus Heights, to Winthrop Sargent on April 16, 1799. In the letter, Wilkinson discusses a number of subjects including the news of his properties and the health of his neighbors - one of which has been struck with a fever. He also laments the loss of letters by a McCrea who was "captured and plundered" by a party of Native Americans.
The first of the journals in this collection recounts Joseph C. Strong's service in the U. S. Navy aboard the warship Trumbull as it escorted other ships from London to the Caribbean in 1800 and 1801. The second larger journal tells of Strong's activities in and around Knoxville in 1816 as he helped to establish a Bible Society. Both of these journals are typewritten copies of the originals.
