Manuscript volume, 1886-1890, autograph album with inscriptions collected by Laurens native Samuel F. Garlington while a student at South Carolina College and South Carolina Military Academy, from which he graduated in 1890.

Among the messages penned by fellow Citadel cadets is this humorous one inscribed “To ‘Reckless’” by Rob[er]t L. Dargan, of Darlington, on 23 January [18]88—“I will not ask you to think of me / When fortune on you smiles, / Nor when you are entangled deep / Within fair woman’s wiles. / But when you kiss a maiden fair / With arms around her waist / Then think how much your old friend ‘Bob’ / Would like to take your place.”
