The Simon B. Robie Papers consist of three parts:
Part 1, the largest part, is arranged in strict chronological order, 1787 - 1847. The material consists, almost entirely, of letters to S. B. Robie, and concerns political, legal and personal affairs.
Part 2, is not in chronological order, and contains letters to S.B Robie; memos; copies of outgoing correspondence; addresses; reports; legal documents; drafts of letters, memos and addresses; a list of grantees of common lots granted under lease of 999 years at Halifax, Nova Scotia; and a copy of, Prologue of the Revenge, 1814 - 1845.
Part 3, is arranged in chronological order, and the contents resemble Part 2, with a mixture of correspondence to S. B. Robie, as well as memos; documents; and drafts of addresses and letters, 1817 - 1846.
