Correspondence between family members, diaries, genealogical materials, writings, and photographs. The letters between husband and wife portray their marriage and give a detailed account of their daily lives when apart in the 1860s. The diaries, 1858-1884, of Sarah Cox Browne reflect on family, religion, health, weather, and domestic and foreign affairs. Those of Albert Browne, Sr., record his Civil War service and those of Albert Browne, Jr., cover the Utah expedition of 1857 against the Mormons and his travels in South America.

The Browne family papers are primarily of Albert Gallatin Browne, a ship chandler in Salem, Massachusetts, and an agent of the United States Treasury Department in Beaufort, South Carolina, during the Civil War, his wife Sarah Smith Cox Browne, and their children, Albert Gallatin, Jr., a lawyer and journalist; Sarah Ellen (Nellie), a nurse of wounded soldiers at a military hospital in Beaufort; Alice; and Edward.
