Letter, 3 April 1862 of J[ohn] C[aldwell] Clemson, Charleston, to “Dear Uncle,” appeals for assistance in helping “Mr. Trescott,” most probably William Henry Trescot (1822-1898), who wished to move his slave force from Beaufort—“if you can let him have Uncle Willies place I think he would buy it”—and suggests that many of the planters from Trescot’s area of the state were seeking to move elsewhere in consequence of the war.
