Records, 1876-1881, G.W. Aimar & Company, Chemists and Apothecaries (Charleston, S.C.) [Addition]
Thirty-eight manuscripts, 1876-1881 and undated, added to the Library's holdings relating to Charleston druggist G.W. Aimar & Company, Chemists and Apothecaries, Charleston, consist largely of orders for pharmaceutical supplies and equipment from physicians and others around the state.

Among the requests is a 29 July 1876 letter from Jno. F. Porteous, Beaufort, seeking Aimar's assistance in locating a patent medicine. In part, Porteous wrote-"yesterday I got a letter from Dr. R.V. Pierce of Buffalo in which he gives me great encouragement with a medicine of his getting up-The Golden Medical Discovery-which he says can be got at any Drug Store-the only Drug Store here has not any such medicine-and I write to you to beg that if you have it you will send it to me....Do Doctor add this to your kindnesses with the Homeopathic medicine and help a very poor friend."
