The first seven items of the collection describe the military career, acsension to the throne, and some official proclamations of Agustin de Iturbide. Many of the remaining items deal with the grandson of Iturbide, Agustin Cosme, and his sister, Savina, and their relationship with Maximillian and their financial and social stations in Mexico, Paris and Philadelphia. Items of particular note are a signed proclamation by Iturbide, a signed letter from Maximillian, and a signed letter from Agustin Cosme to Savina discussing Maximillian, Napoleon III, and the Iturbide family.
