The volumes also contain miscellaneous jottings, poems, and drawings. Also included are photographs, ca. 1873 and undated (probably all late 19th century), of Thomas's friends, some of his Delta Psi fraternity brothers from the University of Virginia, and members of the volunteer fire brigade of Wilmington, N.C., in uniform.
