The correspondence contains sporadic letters (1815-1922) between Howell Cobb, Mary McKinley Cobb, Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb, and members of the McKinley family discussing family matters with some references to Georgia politics. The bulk of the correspondence (1922-1947) contains letters from Carlisle Cobb to his wife Kate Cobb; from Carlisle, Jr. to his wife Juliette Cobb from England, France, and Ireland while serving with the 6th and 28th Cavalry during World War II; and from Mary McKinley Cobb, while a student at Kansas State University, to Lee Trimble. The letters document family matters, activities of the correspondents, and some discussion of politics. Other correspondents include Sara Cobb Baxter, Howell E.
