The largest group of papers relate to his service in the French navy and include official papers, accounts, log of La Tribune, and related material. Some papers, possibly saved by Barney from captured ships, consist of circular letters of British postmasters, instructions and documents for the mail packet Amelia, 1793-1812, with information on intelligence-gathering, as well as a few letters for British merchants, 1812. Also commissions, naval signals, testimonials, and more.
