Circular Letter, April 1836,
Bazile Lanneau, Jr., Charleston, S.C. to
Rev. William Moultrie Read, Sumter District, S.C.

Printed manuscript, Aprril 1836, circular letter signed by B[azile] Lanneau, Jr., Charleston, on behalf of the South Carolina Branch of the American Tract Society, is addressed to the Rev. W[illia]m M[oultrie] Read, Mount Clio P.O., Sumter Dis[trict]. Noting that $1,200 had been subscribed in Charleston for the American Tract Society's "Bound Volume enterprise," the circular solicits the cooperation of auxiliaries outside Charleston and introduces "the Rev. Mr. Smith of Georgetown, D.C.," who was "to be employed by us, as our Agent in the State of South Carolina."

More specifically, the Society hoped to raise $3,000 "for the purpose of establishing a permanent Depository of these books in this city" and to "assist in causing to be placed within the reach of our entire reading population the rich contents of the publications now recommended."
