His papers consist of incoming correspondence (mainly from his friends Oscar Folsom and Samuel Selden Partridge), a speech, documents relating to his career, and a family photograph album. The largest series of correspondence is a group of about ninety (90) letters, 1858 to 1863 (with the majority from 1860-61), from Oscar Folsom. Folsom (1840-1875), from Folsomdale (near Buffalo), was a classmate of Macomber's at the University of Rochester. He became a lawyer in Buffalo, where he was a law partner of Grover Cleveland at the time of his death on July 23, 1875 in a carriage accident. His only child, Frances, married President Cleveland in the White House in 1886. Folsom's long, detailed letters discuss current events (both local and national), his career, social life, and friends. The second group of letters in the collection are those by Samuel Selden Partridge (1839-1913). Partridge was a fellow law student with Macomber in the Rochester law office of Henry R. Selden. He enlisted in the Thirteenth New York Regiment in May, 1861. The nearly fifty (50) letters, 1861 to 1863, to Macomber graphically relate his experiences in the Civil War. Five of the letters have been published in "Civil War Letters of Samuel S. Partridge of the 'Rochester Regiment, '" Blake McKelvey editor; pp. 77-90 of "Rochester in the Civil War," Rochester Historical Society Publication Fund Series, volume 22, Rochester, The Society, 1944. The letters are those of: May 7, 1861; July 24, 1861; August 14, 1861; July 6, 1862; and September 26, 1862. Partridge later became a lawyer in Phelps, New York. His son, author Bellamy Partridge, memorialized him in the book Country Lawyer, published in 1939. The rest of the correspondence consists of sixteen (16) letters, 1858-1868 and 1893, from various people, including Macomber's father, mother, brother, and friends. Other material in the collection includes an 1860 political speech by Macomber, three internal revenue licenses to practice law in the 1860s, his income tax return from 1868, and a family photograph album, probably from the 1880s. Also with the papers is a series of letters, written in 1942, between Francis Selden Macomber (1867-1956; Francis Allen Macomber's son) and Bellamy Partridge (1878-1960) about the Samuel S. Partridge Civil War letters
