Scope and Contents

From the Collection: This collection contains primarily of the incoming correspondence from companies, firms and lawyers with whom Thomas J. Scott and Sons did business. There is also correspondence between the Scotts and some hand copied letters from the Scotts to others. There are also letters from the Scott's church, clubs and lodges as well as requests for appointments to various post offices in Alabama (apparently Charles Scott held a public office at some point.)
