Circular letter, 13 November 1861, "Postponement of the Meeting of the [Lutheran] Synod of South Carolina and Adjacent States," by E.B. Hort, President of Synod, Charleston
Printed manuscript, 13 November 1861, circular letter, "Postponement of the Meeting of the Synod of South Carolina and Adjacent States," is signed in print by E.B. Hort, President of Synod, Charleston.

"Owing to the unsettled state of our Country at the present time, I think it would be impossible for us to hold our next meeting of Synod at the appointed place. I deem it therefore advisable, that the said meeting be deferred, until God in his wise providence shall permit our assembling again, of which the earliest notice shall be given; earnestly exhorting you to cherish that confidence in Him who only can sustain us to the end."

This copy of the circular, complete with cover, was mailed to the Rev. J[ames] M. Schreckhise, Newberry. South Carolina Synod had been scheduled to meet in November 1861 at St. John's Lutheran, Charleston, but the postponed meeting was held instead in January 1862 at St. Paul's Lutheran, Newberry District.
