Colonel John S. Mosby – Incoming
Letters received from Colonel Mosby have been arranged chronologically and placed at the beginning of the series. When the collection was received, letters were still in their original envelopes. Those that aid in the identification of a particular piece by date or correspondent have been filed with their enclosures. Other envelopes were retained as a record of names and addresses of Beverly Mosby's business and personal contacts (See groups "B" and "C", Legal Records and Ephemera). The remainder was discarded. Many of the envelopes originally contained enclosures of newspaper clippings and letters Colonel Mosby received from other people, before passing them on to his son. With the exception of the clippings which are filed separately at the end of Colonel Mosby's correspondence, the remainder has been kept in their original order. The incoming letters of correspondents other than Colonel Mosby have been arranged alphabetically by writer. Outgoing correspondence is chronologically arranged.
