Published in 1949, this selection of letters between Robert Mackay, and his wife, Eliza Anne Mackay, provide unique insight into the life of a southern merchant during the early part of the nineteenth century. The Mackay's correspondence covers business, friendships, social life, and family, in addition to historical events unfolding at the time. The letters in this volume were sent from the Mackay's hometown of Savannah and from such port cities as Norfolk, Charleston, New York, London, and Liverpool.

This collection of 105 letters is ably edited by Hartridge. The notes are ample, cross references are numerous, and the biographical sketches of the many people mentioned in the letters are painstakingly done. Scarcely anyone escapes the editor's careful eye.
