I have recd your favor of the 12th. You may be assured that should the proposal for the exchange of Genl Burgoyne be acceded to on the part of the enemy, every attention shall be paid to the rights of the southern Officers—my personal regard for you will make me particularly careful that no injustice shall be done to you—You have been misinformed as to any particular officers of your Rank...

I had the pleasure to receive, a day or two ago, your obliging letter of the 24th of last month, in which you advise me of the ratification of the fœderal Constitution by South Carolina. By a more rapid water conveyance, that good news had some few days before arrived at Baltimore, so as to have been very opportunely communicated to the Convention of this State, in session at Richmond. It is...
Private Gentlemen— Columbia [S.C.] May 24th 1791. An address to you jointly on a subject of the following nature may have a singular appearance; but that singularity will not exceed the evidence which is thereby given of my opinion of, and confidence in you; and of the opinion I entertain of your confidence in, and friendship for each other. The Office lately resigned by the Honble Mr J....

With great regard, I am dear Sir, Your most obedient Servant LS , privately owned; LS (photostat), PPRF .

It is a cause of no small regret that there appears in a considerable part of the citizens of South Carolina a strong disinclination to the law laying a duty on distilled spirits; and that in consequence of it, difficulties occur in obtaining proper characters to carry it into execution. This was the more unexpected as the duty in question has been rendered necessary by a measure peculiarly...
I have duly received your letter of the 25th of May, by duplicates, with the first and second of a set of bills of Exchange for £ 200 sterling, received by you on account of Mr. Church’s bond. Your former remittance of £ 300 Carolina money was also received and I thought had been acknowledged; but I find by your letter that this was not done. It is not easy for me to give you an idea of the...
I found on my return here three days ago your favor of Sep. 6. and am happy to learn from it that the Agricultural society has adopted the plan of employing a person at Marseilles to raise and send olive trees to them annually. Their success in S. Carolina cannot be doubted, and their value is great. Olive grounds in France rent higher by the acre than those of any other growth in the kindgom,...
I duly received your letter of the 6th of September; and have sent an extract of it to Mr Church for the explanation which is necessary. I feel myself truly obliged by your friendly allusion to my unpleasant situation, and for the consolation you are so kind as to offer me. The esteem of the discerning and virtuous must always support a mind properly formed under the pressure of malevolence...
I have been duly honored by yours of the 13th. of Nov. and I now inclose you copies of my letters to Mr. Cathalan of Marseilles and Mr. Fenwick of Bordeaux, which I shall send to them by triplicates, inclosing in each of those to the former, a copy of your letter to him. You will perceive that I have instructed Mr. Cathalan to make any alterations in the plan which you shall think proper to...
