Summary
This collection consists of 1,200 pieces, seven notebooks, two memoranda and a ledger. The earliest letters are addressed to Garret Minor; papers after 1790 belong to David Watson. Among these are military papers of 1812, consisting of regimental orders, morning reports, forage and military returns, and the roster and order books of Captain David Watson's troop of cavalry from Louisa County, 2nd regiment, Virginia militia. There are some miscellaneous memoranda, composed mainly of notes on proceedings of the Virginia General Assembly, 1822-1829, made by Watson. The note books contain notes and decisions of the District Court at Charlottesville, Virginia; notes of lectures on Natural Law by Bishop Madison, President of William and Mary College, in 1769; and "Remarks and Notes in Traveling" made by G.M. Meriwether in 1819. The ledger, evidently belonging to Garret Minor, dates from 1765 to 1792. It contains the accounts of Thomas Jefferson and others. In the correspondence are letters by Thomas Jefferson, Robert Patterson, Dabney Carr, and John S. Barbour
