Summary
The collection contains correspondence of three generations of the Daniel family. The earliest, 1816-1825, is between William Daniel, his wife Margaret Baldwin Daniel, and their children, chiefly regarding family matters. From 1826-1845 Sarah Warwick Daniel and William Daniel, Jr. are the main correspondents. There is some discussion of Daniel's law practice, but most concerns the family.
The papers of John Warwick Daniel constitute the bulk of the collection. Civil War letters of Daniel and W.J. Kincheloe describe campaigns and battles, including Cedar Mountain, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Rappahannock Bridge, The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and the North Anna River. Several letters from prisoners of war to E.S. Halsey appeal for aid. Transcripts of these letters available as MSS 158-b.
Daniel's postwar correspondence ranges through his student days at the University of Virginia, his political career in the Virginia State Legislature and the U.S. House, and his 23 years in the U.S. Senate. Much of the correspondence discusses family matters with his father, sister Sallie Warwick Daniel Halsey, wife Julia Elizabeth Murrell Daniel, and children Caroline Daniel, John Warwick Daniel, Jr., and Edward M. Daniel.
Other correspondence with many prominent political figures praises Daniel's famous oration on Robert E. Lee (extant) at the dedication of the Lee statue in Lexington, Va.; congratulates him on his election to the Senate; requests patronage; and discusses such issues as funderism, free silver and William Jennings Bryan, the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1901, the Civil War, particularly Daniel's vindication of Jubal Early, and Lee, and Virginia artillery units.
The collection also contains Daniel's U.Va. student notebook; a legal notebook; two books of miscellaneous quotations; diaries from 1903-1907; an 1831 autograph album; and a diary, 1901, describing personal and political activities, including his attendance at the meetings of the Senate Finance and Foreign Relations Committees.
Topics in a large series of speeches and research notes include the South, Southern Democrats, territorial expansion in the Spanish-American War, the Hawaiian Revolution, taxes, tariffs, and the Readjustor movement. Political papers, 1877-1904, discuss the bribing of black voters, 1879; the Virginia-West Virginia debt controversy; and the 1896 presidential election. Legal papers, 1873-1909, contain notes and drafts for some of his legal cases, frequently involving railroads.
The collection also contains essays; poetry; the 1829 diary of Susannah Caroline Warwick on a trip from Virginia to Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; some genealogical material; printed ephemera; photographs; and copies of letters from Robert E. Lee, Jeb Stuart, and Jefferson Davis.
